Bagmati Chief Minister Dormani Poudel today said the provincial government was sensitive about maintaining peace and security.

Inaugurating the newly constructed building of Bagmati Province Armed Police Force Battalion in Hetauda, Chief Minister Poudel said his government had paid special attention towards ensuring peace and security in the province. He said physical infrastructure should be strong for maintaining peace and security.

He added that the security department could not provide the required service without proper infrastructure and added that the federal government had delayed construction of physical infrastructure, earlier.

"But most of the buildings have been completed," he informed.

Construction of 46 buildings had started in the last fiscal.

CM Poudel said that infrastructure for the police force should be strong as the department worked very hard for the nation and its people to provide peace and security. He directed the department to provide better service as the government had never compromised on providing the necessary materials to the police administration.

The province government has constructed 17 buildings. According to the province government, the physical infrastructure of the police would be completed in the remaining places and would be handed over soon.

Chief Secretary Man Bahadur BK of Bagmati Province, Secretary Madan Bhujel of Internal Affairs and Law Ministry, Major General Ashok Kumar Sigdel of Madhiyapritana, DSP Basanta Kumar Lama, Director Suman Baidhya of National Investigation Department Bagmati Province, SP Simendra Singh Rathaur, APF 14 Number Battalion, Hetauda, and SP Nirakrishna Adhikari, among others, were present at the programme.
