Kathmandu, April 17
Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has demanded that Hetaunda be retained as the capital of Province 3.
Deuba says the Provincial Assembly should not bring discussions about relocating the capital for now. His statement follows a number of proposals registered at the Assembly demanding either Kavre or Nuwakot be made the capital.
But, Deuba held a meeting with Chief Minister Dormani Paudel in Hetaunda today to press him against likely discussions in the provincial legislature body.
Earlier, a House of Representatives member form the UML, Birod Khatiwada, and Makawanpur District Coordination Committee Chief Raghunath Khanal had requested Deuba to take initiatives as the main opposition leader to continue the capital status of Hetaunda.
Earlier, Deuba-led government had decided Hetaunda to the temporary provincial capital.
