Indian ambassador to Nepal Naveen Srivastava met Minister for Communication and Information Technology Rekha Sharma at the ministry in Singh Durbar on Sunday.

During the meeting, cooperation on matters relating to mutual interest in the field of communication and information technology were discussed, according to the sources at the ministry.

Minister Sharma shed light on the need to further deepen the government to government and the people to people relations between the two neighbours.

Minister Sharma expressed her concern over the delay in the construction of four-lane road of Ghorahi-Tulasipur of Dang district. The road section is being upgraded with the loan from India’s EXIM bank. She expected cooperation from India to expedite the construction work, according to the Minister’s secretariat.

India’s Tathya Engineering Consultancy has won the bid to construct the road. Although eight local contractors have been changed since it started the work, no progress has been made in the project.
