Kaski, Aug 19: Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister, Narayan Kaji Shrestha, has said action would be taken against the guilty after taking the investigation related into recent gold scam to its conclusion. The Deputy Prime Minister mentioned that it was not necessary to form high-level probe committee for the investigation on the recent gold scam as state’s capable and responsible organisations and mechanisms have been carrying out investigation into it.
At a press meet organised by Press Centre Nepal at Pokhara International Airport today, the Home Minister clarified that the Central Investigation Bureau has been carrying out investigation and it would identify those involved in the scam and bring them under the ambit of law. “Earlier, many high-level probe committees were formed on different scams. The committees submitted their reports but the reports became meaningless after committees’ recommendations were not implemented. So it is appropriate to give responsibility to the capable organisation we established for the investigation”, added the Home Minister.
He mentioned that parliament obstruction by the main opposition party was sad at a time when the government has been launching good governance and anti-corruption campaign, stressing on the need of support of all sides in this campaign launched by the government. DPM Shrestha further said continuity would be given to incumbent government led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ making it more systematic.
Also the vice-chairperson of the CPN (Maoist Centre), Shrestha shared that the party has been holding meetings across the country for the preparation of transformation campaign set by the party.He arrived in Pokhara this morning to attend the seventh plenary meeting of CPN (Maoist Centre) Gandaki Province.
