KATHMANDU: Finance Minister Janardan Sharma today said that local levels should be made self-reliant to accelerate growth and development of the country.
At a meeting with officials of the National Natural Resources and Fiscal Commission, Minister Sharma said that the local governments should be encouraged to be self reliant by implementing and enhancing the new federal system.
“There is no alternative to making the local level self-reliant,” he said. “The country will move forward if the local level is made self-reliant in all sectors including production, private sector, employment and natural resources.” Sharma also suggested that if there are any anomalies at the local level, they should be rectified. “There may be some negative things at the local level. But, a lot of positive work is being done at the local level,” he said.
