LONDON —Model Amber Rose has stood up in backing of Kim Kardashian West after the reality star was vigorously scrutinized for taking off and posting a nude photo on the web.

The 32-year-old model, who earlier dated Kardashian’s husband Kanye West, has shielded the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ after singer Pink appeared to criticise her by encouraging young girls to use “their brains, their strength, their work ethic, their talent” rather than bodies to get attention, reported Female First.

Rose wrote on Instagram, “Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies. If a grown mother of 2 is comfortable with her body and wants to show it off that’s none of ur business or anyone else’s.

“Now, if you wanna talk to kids and be a mentor to young teens, tell them to go to school and to not use their bodies to get ahead?! I’m all for it! But please as a grown woman let another grown woman live as she wishes.”
Rose also went on to question what the difference was between stripping off for a music video, photo shoot or for a shot on Instagram. “That’s our problem! We’re so quick to down each other instead of uplifting! Pink, We’ve seen you damn near naked swinging from a rope (Beautifully) but what’s the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on Instagram? Classism.

“Because you sing while your half naked does that make it “Classy” or is it because u have a “talent”? I’m not dissing at all Pink just curious after you said “You’ll never have to make a silly excuse for yourself (sic),” Rose wrote.

KATHMANDU — The government has decided to award contract for the construction of the 1,200-megawatt Budhigandaki hydropower project, a national pride project, to China Gezhouba Group Corporation (CGGC) once again.

A Cabinet meeting on Friday has decided to award the contract for the project to CGGCL reverting the erstwhile Sher Bahadur Deuba government’s decision to develop the 1200MW project with internal resources.

The Cabinet meeting has directed the Energy Ministry to initiate the process to award the project to the Chinese company.

Following the government decision, the Energy Ministry will now invite the Chinese company for talks and prepare a draft of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) before signing it, according to multiple sources at the ministry.

As per the Cabinet decision, the ministry has been asked to hold talks with the Gezhouba, prepare a proposal, and strike a deal to execute the $2.5 billion reservoir project.

Earlier on May 15, 2017, the Pushpa Kamal Dahal-led government had awarded the contract to construct the Budhigandaki project to CGGCL, juat nine days before he was to resign from the PM’s post.

The Dahal-led government had awarded the contract to CGGCL at a cost of Rs 260 billion as per a study carried out by a French company, Tractebel Engineering.

The agreement, however, invited controversy as the project was handed to the Chinese company without initiating a competitive bidding process.

The Budhi Gandaki hydel project has been touted as a key project to resolve the perennial power crisis in the country. The government has allocated Rs18 billion for compensation payments and operational expenses for this fiscal year.

The Gorkha and Dhading district administration offices are currently distributing compensation to owners of the land taken over by the project.

More than 8,000 households will be affected by the project, according to the latest report.
