Kathmandu, December 30
Speaking at the Development and Technology Committee under the Federal Parliament today, Tiresh Prasad Khatri, executive director of Melamchi Water Supply Development Board, claimed that the water from Melamchi will be brought to Sundarijal by the end of June.
He said that 95.12 per cent of physical infrastructure of the project has been completed.
Khatri informed that out of 32 gates of the project, two have been installed. “We plan to instal 17 gates by mid-July,” Khatri said, adding that installation of the remaining gates could be carried out without affecting the schedule of launching the project.
