Nepal urges India to open Koshi’s floodgates

Janardan Sharma

Kathmandu, August 13

Nepal has urged India to open all 56 flood gates of the Saptakoshi dam after water in river exceeded danger levels.

Home Minister Janardan Sharma said hi-level talks are on between the two countries to open all the gates. “I have talked to the Indian authorities through the foreign ministry, I have also had a conversation with the Indian ambassador,” Sharma told Onlinekhabar.

According a past agreement, although the dam is in Nepal, India needs to agree to open the floodgates of the dam.

In August 2008, a part of the embankment failed, and the river inundated thousands of hectares of land in both Nepal and India.
