Government to formulate poverty alleviation plan

Minister for Land Management, Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation, Shashi Shrestha has said that the Ministry was working on a plan for poverty alleviation.

Talking to journalists here today, she said so far the Ministry has only formal programs on the issue and nothing else, and now it would start real works on the issue by devising a plan.

“Nothing has been done on the issue front except formal programs. Now we are making a plan on this,” Minister Shrestha said, adding that the Ministry officials were busy preparing the action plan on poverty alleviation. On a different note, the Minister for Land Management said the landless squatters’ problem would be resolved as per the constitution.

“The people should get to exercise the constitutionally-guaranteed rights,” she stressed. Stating that the landless squatter problem was there for a long, Minister Shrestha said the land would be managed for the landless squatters. She said the Ministry would own up to the positive works carried out by the previous Landless Squatters Problem Resolution Commission and carry out works in favor of the people.
