Meanwhile, some parties have poured their dissatisfaction over the lack of discussion prior to the formulation of the budget.

According to the Nepali Congress (NC) the discussion was a mere formality.

Nepali Congress Central Committee member Dr. Prakash Sharan Mahat said that it was too late for the discussion as the government is scheduled to unveil the budget tomorrow itself.

He added that the government did not discuss with the Economic Committee and other parties before finalising the budget.

"The Nepali Congress being a major opposition party will raise the issue about the budget on today's discussion," Dr Mahat said, Kantipur reported.
