KATHMANDU – CPN (UML) Chairperson and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has urged civil society and journalists of Karnali Province to focus on carrying out a feasibility study on the availability of petroleum products in Dailekh district.
Extraction of petroleum products would help the country to prosper, he said during his meeting with civil society and journalists of the province at his private residence in Balkot today.
During his term as PM, the process of conducting a feasibility study on the availability of petroleum products at areas including Navisthan, Shirsthan, Paduka, Dhuleshwor and Kotila had taken place after reaching a government-to-government agreement with China, he said.
The Chair of the main opposition party in parliament stressed the need for the promotion of the Rara Lake in Mugu, the construction of a way to Mansarobar through Humla and the collection and processing of valuable medicinal herbs including Yarchagumba (Cordiceps sinensis) in Mugu and Humla districts, said a Dailekh-based journalist, Bishnu Sharma, who joined the meeting. These things would help change the identity of the province, he quoted the former PM as saying.
