Gorkha Post



HATAUDA — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has addressed a special program at the Provincial Assembly meeting of Province 3 in Hetauda Sub-Metropolitan City, Makawanpur on Monday.

Prime Minister Oli, in a special address at Provincial Assembly, said that there was no room for groups to incite violence and conflict in the country.

“Conflict is never the way and we cannot travel back. We must unite for prosperity,” Oli said adding, “The government geared up to ensure development and prosperity, it would act tough against any groups that aimed to incite violence and conflict in the country.”

Prime Minister Oli also urged the lawmakers to perform as per the demands of the people. PM Oli said that the lawmakers must do what the people want them to do as they voted them to represent their voices.

Representatives should maintain good image in the society and that image should look flawless even when observed closely, hinting that the image should not be transient rather it should last for a long time, he said.

He further suggested that the lawmakers should not be influenced by their subordinates.

PM Oli also informed that lawmakers that a Chinese survey team was assessing feasibility for Rasuwa-Kathmandu-Lumbini train. “That study will conclude by August this year,” he said adding that a train would pass by in any cost while recalling Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s words of Raxual-Kathmandu railway during his visit to Nepal last month.

“The Indian team will conclude their feasibility study in a year, and within four years, a train will pass by!” he said adding that a metro rail would circle Kathmandu within three years.

Saying that “Nepal is a land of opportunities and it must find its priorities and possibilities to ensure prosperity and development,” Oli said “We can no longer continue with foreign employment because it has ample effects in families.”

He reassured that the government was focused towards development and prosperity through democratic practices and transparency.

Prior to this, the prime minister had addressed Province 5 assembly on April 29.
