Nepal: Indian Ambassador Lays Foundation Stone for Wastewater Management Project

Indian Ambassador to Nepal, Naveen Srivastava, laid the foundation stone for a wastewater management project in the Solukhumbu District of Nepal on Saturday. The project is expected to provide immense relief to the local population by efficiently handling wastewater in the region. Srivastava expressed his delight at the launch of the project and expressed hope that it will be a success. He also added that India stands ready to assist Nepal in any way to ensure the project’s success. The project is a part of the Indian government’s commitment to improving the lives of the people of Nepal.

The Ambassador of India, along with Mr. Mingma Chhiri Sherpa, Chairman of Khumbu Pasanglhamu Rural Municipality, Solukhumbu, laid the foundation stone for the Khumjung Khunde Waste Water Management Project today. This project is being built with Indian grant assistance as part of the India-Nepal Development Cooperation. The Indian Embassy in Kathmandu shared this information on their official Twitter account.

Home to the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, the Solukhumbu district of Nepal welcomes hundreds of climbers and trekkers on an annual basis. It is an area of immense beauty, with stunning landscapes and a unique culture that has captivated visitors for centuries.

The project reflects continued support provided under Indian grant assistance for providing community services in the remote areas of Solukhumbu district,” the Embassy said in a series of tweets.

Prior to the water treatment plant, the Indian Embassy funded an upgrade to the Thame Khola Small Hydropower Plant in Solukhumbu in January 2017. This upgrade was intended to provide electricity to over 1,200 households in Khumjung, Khunde, Namche Bazar, and Thame Valley.

Further, provisions for drinking water services were made through the implementation of the Khumjung Khunde Drinking Water Project in March 2022, bringing relief to the people of Khumjung, Khunde and Namche Bazar. (ANI)
