The Educational Consultancy Association of Nepal (ECAN) has expressed its serious concern over police raids at different educational consultancies in the Capital on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Organizing a press meet here today, the ECAN said that it would help the Nepal Police in booking proprietors of those consultancies operating illegally. But it said that the overall business should not be hampered in the name of police raid.
The ECAN also urged media houses not to slander the general business on the basis of some institutions which were operating without registration and cheating students.
The Kathmandu Metropolitan Police Crime Division had raided 22 educational consultancies in Kathmandu and Lalitpur districts and arrested their operators on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The raids were completed on educational consultancies in Kupandole, Lagankhel, Putalisadak, Kamaladi, Bag Bazaar, New Baneshwor and Chabahil.Follow @gorkhapost
2018 to be marked as high-level visit year : Minister Gyawali
KATHMANDU — Minister for Foreign Affairs Pradip Gyawali has said that the year 2018 would be made the high-level visit year to solicit assistance for economic development.
Minister Gyawali, at an interaction programme in the capital city today, said that the high-level visit would be helpful to collect assistance for Nepal’s development and prosperity.

This time, high-level visits from the USA, the UK, Japan and other countries would be arranged,” Minister Gyawali said.
He also added that the visit from Prime Minister of Pakistan held last month increased goodwill and was concentrated on holding the stalled SAARC Summit.
On the occasion, the Foreign Affairs Minister said that truce in Syria should be held as the children are falling victims to the war.
He also pledged to work to increase Nepal’s access to UN adding that our approach is not established in comparison to Nepal’s contribution to peace keeping mission. Minister Gyawali reiterated his commitment to not allow Nepal’s soil to be used against any nation.
The Foreign Affairs Minister said that Nepal’s relations with China and India would be based on our necessity instead of an alternative to one another.Follow @gorkhapost
