Finance Minister Bishnu Prasad Poudel has expressed commitment to the development of all regions in Rupandehi district. He made this commitment while inaugurating a bridge constructed over the Danab River at Nayagaon in Butwal-14 today. He said the construction works would be pursued simultaneously. "We will not let this place lag behind in terms of development," he reiterated on the occasion. 

Minister Poudel said both the development work and the government's work would be made effective in the coming days. Stating that the local people have an equal responsibility in pushing for the development issues of this region, he urged them to alert the authorities concerned about this from time to time.
