OSNEPALNEWS, Kathmandu, 26th March: Ranju Darshana, a young politician belonging to Bibeksheel Nepali was spotted at commission for the investigation of abuse of authority. She went there to request the office to investigate and identify the reason behind delay in Melamchi project. For a generation, people in Kathmandu have been waiting for a large drinking water diversion project to relieve them of a severe water shortage and the ministers have provided public with the false hope.
In December, Italian contractor Cooperativa Muratori e Cementisti (CMC) decided to to abandon Melamchi Drinking Water Project. Minister for Water Supply Bina Magar blamed the sheer negligence of the Italian contractor for the delay. She said the project hit a snag at the final stage despite relatively better performance during her tenure.
