Dahal objects to PM’s remarks on Koshi dam
Sep 14, 2017-CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has objected to Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba’s statement regarding an agreement with Indian on the construction of the Koshi High Dam, saying it will be a good idea reach a deal on the project without conducting proper study.
“The government should move ahead only after a detailed study is conducted on whether constructing the Koshi High Dam will be in the interest of Nepal,” said Dahal while talking to journalists in Rajbiraj, Saptari on Wednesday.
Dahal’s Maoist Centre is a key coalition partner of PM Deuba.
During an election publicity rally in Rajbiraj on Tuesday, PM Deuba had said an agreement “has been reached with India regarding the construction of the Koshi High Dam”.
Dahal was in Rajbiraj on Wednesday to attend the party’s campaign for the upcoming local elections scheduled for September 18.
“A package programme will be introduced for the development of Rajbiraj,” said Dahal who arrived in the district on Tuesday.
He attended more than dozen election rallies and gatherings before leaving for Siraha on Wednesday.
