Feb 4, 2017-
The Karnali Development Commission on Friday submitted its report on a 10-year master plan for the region’s development to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal.
On the occasion, the commission chairman, Chandra Kanta Poudel, apprised the prime minister of the challenges facing Karnali’s development, including transportation, food crisis, educational access, use of herbs and its management, tourism promotion, and investment in agricultural sector.
The implementation of the master plan could lessen Karnali’s poverty by 21 per cent in the coming decade, Poudel said.
Prime Minister Dahal said he will discuss the master plan with his Cabinet after studying it. Saying that he will give utmost priority to Karnali region development, the prime minister also instructed the commission to come up with a substantive work plan from its side.
As in the past, Dahal vowed, Karnali’s development will not happen with plans based only on documents.
