Kathmandu, August 3: The Nepal Army has shown concern over the delayed detailed project report (DPR) of the fast track linking the Kathmandu Valley to Tarai/Madhes.
During a progress review meeting relating to the activities done by the Defense Ministry and Nepal Army, Chief of Army Staff, Purna Chandra Thapa, said Nepal Army is committed to accomplishing the fast track within the stipulated time. For it to happen, the decision on DPR must come within 24 hours.
The NA showed such concern after the Defense Ministry failed to approve the DPR though it was sent for approval four months ago. The NA had picked a company from South Korea last September/October to prepare new DPR after the agreement failed on the buying the DPR prepared by an Indian company.
The NA was handed over the responsibility of expressway construction giving the deadline of fiscal year 2079/80. (RSS)
