KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has directed the bureaucracy to take concrete efforts for resolving problems being focused on issues of public importance.
The Prime Minister issued the directive in a meeting to explore solution to the problems related to the compensation of land acquired in Tinkune and manage the landless squatters in the Kathmandu Valley.
