Kathmandu: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ on Monday made a virtual inspection of Narayanghat-Butwal road section and Muglin-Pokhara road section from the ‘Action Room’ located at the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers in Singhadurbar. The two road projects are under-construction but the progress in the construction of both the projects is slow. During the virtual inspection from the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers this afternoon, the PM took stock of the recent progress made in the road construction there and said that progress is not satisfying as expected. “This is not fulfilling. Our quality role should be upped to this area,” the PM said.
On the occasion, PM Prachanda made commitment to addressing the issues arising from short supply of pebbles, sand and stone, and electricity needed for the projects advancement. Likewise, the PM asked the field officials and agencies to submit their reports on a regular and timely basis stating that the challenges could be troubleshoot if the reports were received in time so that the people’s woes could be resolved. Now, the progress of the projects should be measured on the basis of milestone indicators, he added. The PM also directed the officials and agencies to complete the projects in time and warned that there will be no excuse in the delay of the projects under different pretexts. “These two projects are highly important and the construction should be completed in time. I will also come to the field to inspect the projects. Now I will give more time for the development works,” according to the PM. “Tasks of the national pride projects should be carried out in two shifts. Let’s do serious homework for this. This is the last opportunity to work,” the PM appealed to utilize opportunity for development.
