NC likely to form electoral alliance in third phase of local polls: PM Deuba

DHANGADHI: Prime Minister and Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that the dialogues are on in the matter of forming alliance between the NC and other political party (ies) in the third phase of local level elections taking place in the Province no. 2 on coming September 18.

Talking to mediapersons briefly today at the Dhangadhi Airport before heading to Kanchanpur, the PM hinted the possibility of an electoral alliance with other political parties on the basis of necessity.

Pm Deuba further said a four-lane bridge going to be constructed over the Mahakali River in Kanchanpur would contribute to the holistic development of the entire Province no 7.

PM Deuba expressed his confidence that the agreements made with India for the construction of Pancheshwar Project and Dry Port as well as upgradation of Gauriphanta Check Point would be implemented.

According to him, a bilateral agreement to build a technical institute with the India's financial support for vocational and technical studies in the Province no 7 was one of the achievements of his recent five-day state visit to the southern neighbour.

PM is scheduled to lay a foundation stone for the construction of the bridge over the Mahakali River, which Nepal is going to build on its own.

Around a billion rupees has been allocated in the current fiscal year for the same.
