KATHMANDU, Aug 29: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Monday said that he will consult with experts on the issues of national importance before he leaves for India visit.

During the meeting with the delegation of Rastriya Sarokar Abhiyan Nepal, the Prime Minister said that he will take strategic and technical suggestions from the experts before embarking on India tour.

“You have raised a serious issue,” he said, “I will definitely take suggestions from a team of experts to ensure that an agreement against the national interest will not be reached.”

On the occasion, the Prime Minister said that he has not even thought of awarding the contract for the construction of Nijgadh-Kathmandu Fast Track to foreign companies.

“The decision made by the erstwhile government that Nepal will construct the Fast Track was taken on my initiatives,” he said, “Rumors that the government is handing over the contract to foreign companies are baseless.”
