Lalitpur, Nov. 30: Assistant Minister for Local Development Biraj Bista has said that priority should be given to the micro hydropower projects.
Inaugurating the newly-declared Bajra Barahi Municipality in Lalitpur today, Bista said that the small hydropower projects should be accorded priority as mega projects would consume more time for their completion.
He said that the government was preparing to unveil the provision for installing solar panel for the construction of new building before approving the building design.
Assistant Minister Bista also said that election to the local bodies would be held soon as development in the grassroots level would be expedited from the elections.
Likewise, lawmaker Yogendra Ghising said that Bajra Barahi Municipality could be developed as the tourist site.
On the occasion, Secretary at the Ministry of Local Development Madhav Prasad Ghimire promised to allocate Rs 10 million for the building construction of the municipality. RSS
