NC stands against full budget


Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has said that the caretaker government has no authority to bring full fledged budget.

Koirala met President Dr Ram Baran Yadav at the latter's residence in Shital Niwas and drew his attention this morning.

Koirala's remark comes at the time when the opposition parties—NC and CPN-UML— have been protesting against the government's move to announce full budget through ordinance.

During the meeting, Koirala warned to protest if budget was announced randomly. He said the political parties should forge consensus prior the announcement of budget.

Earlier on Sunday, the opposition parties had made up their mind to resort to protests if a complete budget was brought without consensus.
