At a programme in the ministry today, State Minister Banskota directed the chiefs of the line agencies to bring plans of action along with objectives and goals to implement within three-four months.
“You have to submit what the organization is working in, what are the weaknesses, how can they be addressed and what are the future plans,” the State Minister asked to furnish the details categorically in brief.
Saying that the private institutions run with state facilities and grants have progressed but the state-owned agencies have degraded day by day, Banskota added this needs to be improved.
All stakeholders should work to ensure people’s access to quality information in an accessible and easy way as the constitution has guaranteed right to information as the people’s fundamental rights.
State Minister Banskota also shared that the major target of the government was to maintain good governance and make a prosperous nation and stated that all should work together and dutifully to make the upcoming decade as the period of new construction.

On the occasion, State Minister Banskota suggested the RSS to make plans to garner more revenue and adopt stern measures to curb unauthorized uses of RSS news services.
