Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa has vowed to crush cartels operating in all sectors, citing the success of eliminating the syndicate from the transport sector.

While addressing the first central assembly of the Nepal Public Transport

Pvt Ltd Coordination Committee here on Saturday, the minister said the curse

of syndicates benefits a few people. These must be destroyed if we want prosperity for all.

“Ending the public transport syndicate was urgent for prosperity of entrepreneurs and convenience of the public,” the minister said. He admitted some legal hurdles still persist in effectively managing public transport service.

According to him, promotion of energy and transport sector would help country find a faster way towards development.

Stating that China aspired to record a miracle in development efforts with the help of ‘one belt one initiative’ project, he was of the view that Nepal should learn

from China about how to take the country towards development.

Committee chairman

Hom Prakash Adhikari said transport entrepreneurs decided to go for a private company by dissolving syndicate as they wished to make the public transport more systematic. A total of 51 transport entrepreneurs companies are associated with the committee.
