Kathmandu, February 5

Minister for Communications and Information Technology, Gokul Banskota, has blamed the country’s constitutional anti-corruption watchdog and various parliamentary committees for the delay in expanding 4G service in Nepal Telecom’s mobile network.

He says it has already been one year since the plan was finalised; but the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority halted the implementation in the name of an investigation.

Further, various House committees have launched their own probes into the issue, further delaying the project, according to him.

Speaking at a function organised on the occassion of NT’s anniversary in Kathmandu on Tuesday, the Minister said, “The world knows it that the project has been stuck for past one year.”

“The CIAA completed its investigation and many committees are quizzing over the same issue again.”

He claimed the government was under pressure from multiple sides to delay the expansion project. The Minister, however, failed to name who they were.
