'Gandaki Economic Triangle' significant for multi-dimensional development: PM Dahal

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has articulated optimism regarding the proposed 'Gandaki Economic Triangle' project, introduced in the forthcoming fiscal year's budget. During the House of Representatives session, he conveyed that the initiative aims to foster integrated development by connecting Bharatpur, Butwal, and Pokhara with the assistance of the private sector. This project is anticipated to spur multidimensional development across the country.

Dahal emphasized that the 'Gandaki Economic Triangle' would catalyze advancements in industry, energy, tourism, and agriculture, thereby generating employment opportunities for Nepali citizens. Furthermore, he highlighted the government's strategic policy to avoid redundancy in project selection across federal, provincial, and local levels. Accordingly, large-scale projects will be managed by the federal government, mid-sized projects by provincial authorities, and smaller projects by local governments.

Additionally, the Prime Minister informed the House about the ongoing efforts to implement agreements for developing the Ramayana and Buddha circuits, which aim to connect religious shrines in Nepal and India. He reiterated the government's commitment to these bilateral agreements, which involve linking 15 religious sites across both countries. Budget allocations have also been made for establishing the Shiva, Buddha, and Kirat circuits.

Prime Minister Dahal assured that the government is dedicated to resolving all land-related issues, including those related to Guthi and public land.
