Kathmandu, May 19, 2016:Â Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has claimed the country will produce petroleum products within the next two years and the process for production has already begun.
“The production process has already started from Dailekh and Bayarban in Morang,” Oli said at a programme organised at Academy Hall in Kathmandu by UML-affiliated Press Chautari Nepal.
The PM took up the issue of owning and operating own ship and claimed it was possible. “The laws were formulated in 2027 BS regarding the operation of ships. Nepal had even submitted money as an advance,” he said.
Hinting at the jokes and other opinions in social media and various platforms regarding his plans to operate ships, Oli said, “Some intellectuals have taken my words lightly and for granted. But Nepal will operate ships in the oceans.”
