UP CM pledges to improve Nepal-India road links

Dhangadhi, February 9

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today said that he would make efforts to upgrade all roads linking India with Nepal to four lanes.

Inaugurating International Bird Festival in India’s Dudhuwa National Park, which borders Nepal, Adityanath said expansion of road networks would help to facilitate the movement of people of both countries.

Stating that any harm done to the environment would have an adverse impact on the wildlife, Adityanath stressed on the need to work together for the protection of the environment and wildlife.

He said Dudhuwa National Park was the largest national park home to many wild animals and more than 400 species of the birds.

Noting that Dudhuwa had immense potential for tourism, Adityanath urged everyone to create environment for tourists to visit the place.

At the programme, Forest Minister Danda Singh Chauhan of Uttar Pradesh said Dudhuwa National Park was important not only for India but also for Nepal.
