योजना आयोगका उपाध्यक्ष गोविन्द पोखरेल – नर्निर्माण प्राधिकरणको सिइओमा नियुक्त

बिहीबार बसेको मन्त्रिपरिषद्को बैठकले योजना आयोगका उपाध्यक्ष  गोविन्द पोखरेल लाई  नर्निर्माण प्राधिकरणको सिइओमा नियुक्त भएका छन्। भूकम्प पछि पुनर्निर्माणका लागि सहयोग जुटाउन काठमाडौंमा आयोजित अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय सम्मेलन सफल बनाउन महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका खेलेको भन्दै प्रधानमन्त्रीले पोखरेललाई नै पुरस्कृत गर्ने सोच बानाएका  थिए।



पोखरेललाई नियुक्ति गर्नुअघि एमाले अध्यक्ष केपी ओलीको समर्थन जुटाएका प्रधानमन्त्री सुशील कोइराला लाई कांग्रेसका केही वरिष्ठ मन्त्री, उपप्रधानमन्त्री वामदेव गौतमसहित एमालेका वरिष्ठ मन्त्री लगायतको समर्थन थियो। रामशरण महत, महेश आचार्य तथा नरहरि आचार्य लगायतले अर्को उपयुक्त व्यक्ति खोज्नु पर्ने राय प्रधानमन्त्रीलाई दिएका थिए।  मिनेन्द्र रिजालले भने पोखरेलको समर्थन गरेका थिए।

योजना आयोगले नेतृत्व गरेको भूकम्पपछि पुनर्निर्माणका लागि नेपालको आवश्यकता ‘पोष्ट डीजास्टर निड एसेसमेन्ट’ ( पिडीएनए) तयार गर्ने कामको   दातृ राष्ट्र र निकायले पिडीएनए यथार्थपरक भएको भन्दै प्रसंशा गरेका थिए। सो सम्मेलनमा ४०० अर्बभन्दा बढी सहयोगको बचन आएको थियो। पुनर्निर्माणका लागि पाँच वर्षसम्ममा ६ सय ६७ अर्ब रूपैयाँ लाग्ने अनुमान छ।
