Kathmandu, September 11

Former prime minister and Samajwadi Party Nepal leader Baburam Bhattarai has said the government should invest in infrastructural development in the country as the private sector is still unable to do so.

Speaking at a session of the Nepal Infrastructure Summit being held in Kathmandu on Thursday, Bhattarai, however, said the private sector should cooperate with the government in excelling in the production of services and goods.

“We assigned the private sector to construct the road tunnel, but that could not happen,” he said, “It shows that the private sector has not yet reached the level to invest in infrastructure projects.”

He also urged the private investors to invest in the energy sector as Nepal could sell electricity to India, China, Bhutan and Bangladesh. Bhattarai said the private sector could partner with the government in the construction of Kathmandu-Tarai fast track and Nijgadh International Airport.
