PM Dahal assures prompt action on Balkumari incident

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, commonly known as Prachanda, addressed concerns surrounding the tragic incident in Balkumari, Lalitpur, on December 29, 2023, during a parliamentary session on Sunday.

In his address, PM Dahal reassured the public that appropriate measures would be taken following a thorough review of the inquiry report submitted by the commission investigating the incident.

Facing inquiries from parliamentarians, PM Dahal admitted to not yet having examined the report himself, underlining the importance of a comprehensive assessment before any decisive action.

The main opposition parties, CPN-UML, and Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP), seized the opportunity to demand the resignation of Physical Planning Minister Prakash Jwala, following the commission's findings linking him to the incident.

PM Dahal clarified that the commission, initiated based on his proposal, had recently submitted its findings to the Ministry of Home Affairs. While he had yet to receive the report personally, he reiterated his commitment to promptly reviewing its contents.

"As the Prime Minister, I have not yet had the opportunity to peruse the report; I am expecting it today. Rest assured, once I have thoroughly examined the findings, appropriate actions will be taken against those responsible," affirmed PM Dahal.
