Beni –Chief Minister of Gandaki province Prithivi Subba Gurung has expressed concerns about the delay in the construction of Beni-Jomsom-Korala road section under Kaligandaki corridor. "I have been receiving complaints about the delay. Kaligandaki corridor and Korala transit are future of the province.
Homework is being done on connecting the road along the Kaligandaki River banks with Tribeni transit and Pokhara," he said while inaugurating the second district assembly of the district coordination committee here on Thursday. He also stressed the need for all to make efforts in completing the corridor, Pokhara international airport and the Mid-Hill Highway that fall within the province.
Earlier recently, CM Gurung made a field inspection of the corridor, and found that only five percent of the construction were completed so far. "The delay under any pretext will not be excused. The suspects will be booked. Continuous inspection and monitoring are needed to ensure development projects are being executed properly," he said. He also underscored the need for the federal government to be serious about monitoring national pride projects. ---
