KATHMANDU: Finance Minister Barshaman Pun has said that the government would bring a full-fledged budget on the basis of consensus among the political parties while speaking at a press meet organised by the Janasanchar Abhiyan on Friday.
Minister Pun urged the opposition parties to think about the interests of the nation and work accordingly rather than venting against the proposed budget.
According to Minister Pun, the government has been planning to announce an estimated budget of Rs 429 million.
He also said that the Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai would resign from his office once the political consensus on the disputed issues was forged.
Stating that the guarantee of people's rights was the sole interest of the UCPN (Maoist), he said the government and the coalition partners are ready for fresh elections.
