Karnali able to lift nation’s economy, says President
Oct 12, 2017-President Bidya Devi Bhandari has said that Karnali holds the capacity to strengthen the economy of the country.
Inaugurating a new laboratory building of Chandannath Namuna Secondary School in Khalanga on Wednesday, the President said Karnali is land of abundant possibilities, full of natural resources. “Karnali is also a historical land of language, art and culture, and is rich in rare wildlife and plant species,” she said.
The President, however, expressed sympathy over the absence of a normal living for the inhabitants of the region due to lack of socio-economic development. “It is only
the happiness and prosperity of Karnali that will bring radical change to the face of the country, and hence it is the responsibility of all to develop and enforce a roadmap of overall development of the country.”
Also speaking on the occasion, former state minister for culture, tourism and civil aviation Bal Bahadur Mahat expressed his view that Karnali is still behind in the education sector. He also requested the President for her support in upgrading the Karnali Highway.
President Bhandari visited the Mountain Agriculture Research Institution in Guthichaur and later offered worship at the temple of Chandannath and Bhairabnath Baba.
