Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) and Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport (MoPIT) Narayan Kaji Shrestha have held a discussion with Indian officials on the progress and problems surrounding the projects funded by the Government of India.

 During the courtesy meeting in Kathmandu today, the minister urged the Indian team including the Additional Secretary of the Ministry of External Affairs of India Prabhat Kumar to expedite physical infrastructure projects funded by the Indian government.

Minister Shrestha was concerned about the Janakpur-Jayanagar Railway funded by India and the projects constructed with loans from the Export-Import Bank of India (EXIM Bank). He urged secretary Kumar for felicitating the projects, said the MoPIT Secretary Keshab Kumar Sharma. "The discussion was not intense as there took place a courtesy meeting. But, a serious discussion took place on resolving problems surrounding the projects, and speeding up them," he said.

 He added that the meeting also focused on the Kathmandu-Raxaul railway and other projects. The design of the railway in detail is underway. It was also agreed upon to constantly continue such discussions, and seek all available ways to resolve problems revolving around these projects, it has been said.
