HETAUDA, Aug 27: Province 3 Chief Minister Dormani Poudel has said that the Province Government would construct the Bhimphedi-Kulekhani Tunnel Highway.
He said although the government signed an agreement in 2012 with Nepal Infrastructure Development Company to complete the tunnel way within four years, works have not progressed in that connection so far. So the province government would undertake its construction.
Stating that the province government has already allocated Rs 50 million for preparing the detailed project report of the tunnel way, Chief Minister Poudel said the construction works would be carried out vigorously placing the project as the pride project of the province.
The province government has also requested the federal government to abrogate the agreement with the Company citing that the company, it seems, could not carry out the construction now although it has extended the project term till 2022.
Chief Minister Poudel said the Company has so far not even started a scratch of work on the project. He said the time has come for the people to ask for the hundreds of thousands of rupees which they had invested in the Company for construction of the tunnel way.
