CHITWAN, Dec 25: CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has pledged to merge Thori of Parsa district into Province No. 3.
At a programme organized by Thori Rural Municipality after an inspection visit to the area today, Prachanda said though there was a plan to keep Thori in Province 3, it could not materialize due to Madhes movement.
The upcoming government will give top priority to merge Thori into Province 3.
He also added that implementing the merger of Thori into Province No. 3 would be an easy job after the rural municipality's anonymous decision to that end.
Recalling that maximum quantity of petroleum products and food stuffs was imported via this check point, the former prime minister said that Thori-Kerung road would be developed soon after upgradation of the point.
"This route is very important for trilateral cooperation; this would be very short and crucial route," he added.
The Maoist Centre Chairman visited Thori while going to Madi and Badarjhula of Chitwan district to extend thanks to the voters after his election as the MP.
Earlier this morning, Prachanda thanked the voters of Badarjhula and promised to take a concrete decision to resolve the problems squatters facing.
Likewise, Prachanda urged not to harbour doubts on unity between UML and Maoist Centre and refused the media contents disseminated in the recent days.
