BIRATNAGAR, August 9: Mayor of Biratnagar Metropolitan City (BMC) Nagesh Koirala has said there can be no compromise with anyone on naming Biratnagar as the permanent capital city of Province 1. He made it clear that BMC would extend support in creating infrastructures necessary for the provincial capital.

Mayor Koirala said it while talking to the Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS). The provincial government has been searching for land to construct physical infrastructures for the capital city. A committee has also been formed to this effect.

"We already have adequate infrastructures. If additional land is required, BMC will extend help," he reiterated. 

The provincial government has designated Biratnagar as the temporary provincial capital in line with the concept of 'greater Birat region.' The greater Birat region has incorporated 18 local levels. 

Mayor Koirala, however, said the province government has not written any formal letter to this regard.
