BHIMDUTTANAGAR, Dec 2: Prime Minister and Nepali Congress president, Sher Bahadur Deuba has claimed that he would become the Prime Minister once again if the Nepali Congress won the House of Representatives and State Assembly elections in Seti and Mahakali zones.
Addressing separate election assemblies in Belauri, Jhalari and Bhimduttanagar today, he vowed to complete the Pancheshwar multi-purpose project and the West Seti Hydropower Project in the province if he again became the Prime Minister.
"The construction of the Pancheshwar project is at the stage of being started while the contract for the West Seti project has already been signed. If these two big projects are completed then Province-7 would be the richest province in the country," he said.
Stating that the Mahakali Zonal Hospital would be upgraded and the Majhagaon airport brought into operation, PM Deuba expressed his determination to complete the construction of a four-lane bridge over the Mahakali River which is currently under construction.
He stated that he was always committed to the development of the Far-west region and declared to implement more big projects in the future for the province's development.
"Oli ji will not stop dreaming of the postponement of the election even after casting his ballot on December 7," PM Deuba said, referring to CPN (UML) chairman KP Sharma Oli. He said the opposition is making unnecessary hue and cry that he was going to postpone the election.
Nepali Congress central committee members Dilendra Prasad Badu, Narayan Prakash Saud and Ramesh Lekhak, among other leaders also expressed their views in the election assemblies.
