Devghat Area Development Committee has demanded appropriation of budget of Rs 108.88 million for the fiscal year 2019/20. The budget amount has been demanded to execute the master plan of the area, it was informed at a press conference organized by the Committee at Bharatpur on Wednesday.
Budget allocated for Devghat area development in the current fiscal year was very low and it was not result-yielding as well, the committee said. “This year Rs 7.5 million was appropriated towards capitalized and Rs 2 million towards recurrent”, said Devghat Area Development Committee Chairperson Shivaraj Poudel.
He added the amount was non-existent to carry out some result-yielding works. Chairperson Poudel demanded regular appropriation of budget for the implementation of 125 plans of the Devghat development.
