ACHHAM, June 20: Standing committee member of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), Bhim Rawal, has said the government should construct the Upper Karnali Hydropower Project on its own.
Nepal government is capable enough to construct the project, he asserted during a program organized by NCP Accham at Binayak in the district on Wednesday. The GMR Company of India must not be handed over the responsibility for the construction, he underscored, pointing out the government's activeness to accomplish the project in time.
The project with the capacity of producing 900 MW electricity is linked to the prosperity of Far West and Karnali States, according to him. He also made commitment to solving people's problems.
Also speaking on the occasion, central member of the party, Sharad Singh Bhandari, viewed that the party would gradually expand its committees at rural, municipal and ward levels by working together with the people.
