Parliamentary team in Mustang to study possibility of new entry point
Nov 30, 2015-
A parliamentary committee has arrived here in the district to carry out feasibility study for opening a new entry point to Nepal from China through Korala at Chhoser VDC in Mustang district.
The team is led by the chairman of Development Committee under the Legislature-Parliament, Rabindra Adhikari.
Similarly, the team comprises lawmakers Prakash Poudel and Shree Maya Thakali, Chief District Officer of Mustang, Ganesh Adhikari, and other security officials.
The team today left for Upper Mustang and would inspect the Korala border point and its possibility of importing goods from neighboring China.
The border point might be developed as an alternative way for importing goods as the country was facing border problems due to blockade imposed from India for past three months.
The border point that was brought into operation some 12 years ago was closed by the Chinese authority citing security challenges.
Likewise, Chinese authority has deployed the armed security officials by establishing a camp and has set up the closed circuit camera for monitoring the activities in the border.
Mustang CDO Adhikari said that the team would submit its study report to the government after studying all possibilities by holding discussions with the locals in the border area. RSS
