Kathmandu, April 2

Nepal’s Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa on Monday launched a 82-point home administration reform plan of action, in which he has proposed using drones for Nepal-India border security.

The plan was unveiled in the presence of chiefs of security agencies amidst a function at the Ministry today.

“On the Indian side, there are security posts every kilometre, whereas the distance between two nearest posts on the Nepali side is as far as 25 kilometres,” Thapa said, “We do not have sufficient human resources to address this problem. Therefore, we will now use drones.”

The plan of action stresses protection of national unity and controlling crime, corruption, black marketing.

Likewise, it aims at ensuring quick service delivery to the public.

The plan proposes that each local unit have a security post and security agencies be made information technology friendly.

The Minister has also promised to take initiatives to establish a dedicated authority for disaster management and promote good governance.
