Phungling, November 17
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s scheduled visit to Taplejung district for various programmes including inspecting the border area shared with China’s autonomous region, Tibet, has been put off.
Earlier, Chief District Officer Jharendra Prasad Chapagain was informed about the scheduled visit for coming Friday (November 20).
