House panel team to carry out onsite monitoring of land purchased by NOC

After increased controversy, the Industry, Commerce and Consumer Welfare Committee – under the Legislature-Parliament – has decided to carry out an onsite visit of the land purchased by Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) for petroleum storage in four districts.
Committee chair Bhishmaraj Angdembe in today's meeting said that a group of lawmakers including those elected from Jhapa, Sarlahi, Chitwan and Rupandehi districts will be sent for the onsite monitoring. "The groups will collect real facts by holding discussion with representatives of concerned offices, people's representatives of local-level and locals of the area, where the NOC had purchased the land, of the four districts," he added.
On the occasion, Lawmakers Subas Chandra Thakuri, Bhesh Kumari Raut, Krishna Prasad Poudel, Shambhu Lal Shrestha, Deepak Karki and Shyam Kumar Shrestha stressed the need of carrying out comprehensive probe into the land purchase scandal.
