KATHMANDU: Minister for Communications and Information Technology Gyanendra Bahadur Karki has dismissed news reports that ‘the incumbent government has mobilized secret agent to spy on former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’ as baseless.

“I want to make clear that the news reported by some media about the mobilization of spies by the incumbent government to spy on former PM KP Sharma Oli, and about the government interference with right to privacy by tapping phone calls of citizens is baseless,” he said at a press conference organized here on Friday to make public the decisions taken by the Cabinet meeting on August 4.

The government has decided to form a talk team to receive concessional loan worth over 15.9 billion Japanese Yen (Approximately Rs 14.6 million) from the Government of Japan to implement the power transmission and distribution system strengthening project, he informed.

Likewise, ceiling for security deposit will be increased to Rs 500,000 from existing Rs 300,000 that came into effect from July 17.
