Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has called on all the political parties and the citizens to lend support to the national responsibility of achieving prosperity, describing it as the national resolve.
Addressing the function organised by the Constitution Day, 2018 Celebration Main Committee at the Nepalese Army pavilion at Tundikhel on Wednesday, Prime Minister and the Main Committee Chairman, Oli, said the phase of political movement and drafting of the main law of the land was over, and now it was time for one and all to be involved in the country’s prosperity and development with a cooperative attitude.
President Bidya Devi Bhandari was present on the occasion.
“Prosperity and development is not the individual concern of a single Prime Minister or the government or of one party or a person. It is our national resolve. It is that resolve which we have made from time to time with our countrymen who toiled and sweated with us and even laid down their lives in the frontline of every movement. We have now entered the phase of giving the experience of change from the phase of showing the dream of prosperity,” the Prime Minister declared.
Noting that the aspirations of the Nepali people to live a life of dignity and respect would be fulfilled with the promulgation and implementation of the constitution in a way it proved to be a milestone of modern Nepal, he said the laws related to fundamental rights were already formulated while the legal arrangements required for good governance were in progress.
“The federal system is a new practice for Nepal,” the Prime Minister said, claiming of its successful implementation. As he said, debates on whether or not federalism was appropriate in the context of Nepal were no more relevant for us. He insisted on dedication on the part of people in the leadership level for its effective implementation.
He utlised the occasion to express his hope on the constitutional amendment, if necessary, over the course of time.
The prime minister further said that a phase of political movements for rights has been already over and no forceful agitation or inappropriate activities in the name of achieving rights or a political system was necessary in the country. Agitation of such nature should be the history.
He added that the government was clear that the State should not lose its conscience and violate the rule, calling on all State bodies to work on the same rhythm to materialize the dreams of nation. The Executive Chief sought balance and conscience in decisions of the executive, legislative and judiciary bodies to be made in relations to the citizen.
Four Nepalese Army’s helicopters with banners which read ‘Constitution Day 2075 BS’ sprinkled flower petals on the occasion. The NA, Nepal Police, Armed Police Force and Nepal Scouts performed march-pasts and gave their cultural presentations. Cultural rallies were held by local levels in the Kathmandu Valley.
Chief Justice Om Prakash Mishra, Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara, National Assembly chair Ganesh Prasad Timilsina, deputy prime ministers, ministers and government senior officials were present on the occasion.
