PM inaugurates biogas supply plant

Biratnagar, August 21

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today inaugurated a biogas supply plant in Jatuwa of Biratnagar Metropolitan City.

Oli inaugurated the 200 cubic metre plant that will supply bio-fuel. The plant was constructed by Shreekrishna Gausewa Sadan. The plant was built at a cost of 15 million rupees. “The plant is a stepping stone in the journey of prosperity,” Oli said, while lightning a stove at the programme. “The age of carrying cylinders on shoulders has come to an end; be it for a few families,” Oli added.

The biogas produced from two tonnes of cow dung is being supplied to 32 families. The Gaushala is working to supply the gas to 48 more families. “Since 80 houses will be supplied with bio-fuel, the tradition of carrying cylinders on shoulders has ended,” he stated.

Stating that the government was moving ahead with the agenda of nation building, Oli said his government had started to convert challenges to opportunities and assets. “Trash is not trash. If it is managed well, it will turn into cash,” Oli said. He urged all to stop worrying and think of ways to turn obstacles into opportunities. Noting that a campaign of self-reliance had started,  Oli urged industrialists and entrepreneurs to establish industries  focused on production, jobs, self reliance, and export. He further asked industrialists to be part of the campaign of being self-reliant.

At the event, Minister for Energy Barshaman Pun said that PM’s campaign for self-reliance had materialised, though in a small scale.
