SUDURPASCHIM, June 18: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has reaffirmed his commitment to help convert Geta Medical College into an academy.

Inaugurating the newly-built administrative building of Dhangadhi Sub-Metropolitan City on the Sub-Metropolis's premises today, PM Deuba assured everyone to help the proposed Geta Medical College come into operation by introducing a Bill related to the Academy through the Council of Ministers.

The newly-inaugurated building was jointly built by the Dhangadhi Sub-Metropolis and Government of Nepal at the cost of Rs 72.3 million. The five-story building has 35 rooms. 

Deuba expressed his happiness over the proposal regarding operation of Geta Medical College. Furthermore, he pledged to take initiatives to facilitate international trade through the Gaurifanta Checkpoint. 

Citing that the Mohana River flowing along the Nepal-India border has been eroding land on both sides, Deuba said that initiatives will be taken to prevent the erosion. 

He spoke of the need to curb land encroachment and underscored conservation of forests to make Dhangadi a well-managed and beautiful town. 

Pressing for coordination and cooperation between  the local and provincial governments to take forward the development works in the wake of implementation of federalism in the country, Deuba expressed his concern over the lackadaisical attitude in the bureaucracy to deliver public services.

Similarly, Sudurpaschim Province Chief Minister Trilochan Bhatta articulated the provincial government's willingness to collaborate with the local governments for development endeavors.

Bhatta spoke of the need to implement the West Seti Hydropower Project and the proposed Geta Medical College at the earliest.

Likewise, Dhangadhi Sub-Metropolitan City mayor Gopal Hamal shared that a five-year plan of action was formulated by the sub-metropolis after he assumed his office. "I am ready to coordinate efforts with the provincial and federal government for the prosperity and development of Dhangadhi Sub-Metropolitan City."
