Govt to tighten security: Home minister

Kavre, February 3

Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa today stressed the need to tighten security in the country.

Addressing a cultural programme organised by Nepal Tamang Ghedung at Banakhu of Mahabharat Rural Municipality, Kavre, Thapa said security should be beefed up as domestic and foreign forces were actively escalating uncertainty in the country.

“The federal government will formulate a plan to tighten the security in the country as some forces are hell-bent on reviving the old political system”, he stated.

Minister Thapa said his ministry was planning to establish one area police office each in the 753 local levels. “Some forces are working to disturb peace, and revive the old system. So, the central government will come out with a security plan to maintain law and order,” he added.

Thapa held that the government had started a campaign of prosperity and expedited construction of roads, electricity, communications and hospitals. He said the government would gain economic growth rate of 10 per cent in a year. “The government wants to see the vision of “Prosperous Nepali and Happy Nepalis” materialise, Thapa added.
