SINDHUPALCHOWK: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ assured of full support from his government to operate the Melamchi Water Supply Project regularly, systematically, and in a more organized manner.

PM Dahal said so while arriving at the intake area located at Ambathan in Helambu rural municipality-1 in Sindhupalchowk district today for an on-site visit of the Project.

The Project is expected to supply 170 million liters of fresh water to Kathmandu Valley on a daily basis.

It may be noted that the water from the Project was first distributed in Kathmandu Valley through an inaugural program on April 2, 2021.

Dahal, while inspecting the Project, reaffirmed his government’s commitment to making immediate initiatives to bring additional water from Yangri and Larki rivulets for the Project to deliver at its full capacity.

“I very much wanted to visit here in inaugural. I was not the Prime Minister back then although our party’s candidate was leading the Ministry of Water Supply in that government. I will take the initiatives to streamline the Project,” reaffirmed the Prime Minister.

The Head of the Government said that this government will make necessary arrangements for the budget to further manage the roads swept away by the flood in the Melamchi River, adding the government will take a necessary decision in this regard.

Furthermore, Dahal expressed his commitment to addressing the demands of the locals at the Project site. As for the dismissal of the development committee following the completion of the Melamchi Project, he said his attention was drawn towards resolving the problems relating to the Project in the absence of the committee.

On the occasion, Melamchi Drinking Water Development Committee’s executive director Kamal Raj Shrestha briefed PM Dahal about the Project.

The Project is enlisted as one of the national pride projects in the country. The Prime Minister’s visit was intended to accelerate its effective delivery.

PM Dahal is accompanied by Minister for Water Supply Mahindra Ray Yadav.
