Stating that there was still not cohesion in between laws, structures and policies in the changed system, Pokhrel said that there were still come grievances in service delivery though agriculture, industry, energy, tourism and infrastructure sectors were prioritized for development.
In a separate context, the DPM said, "We can accept the support of any country if it is in our national interests".

And, it can't be called prosperity if there remains questions from the perspective of gender inclusion despite immense development," Dr Khatiwada added.
