December 1: Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Renu Yadav informed that preparations are underway to bring necessary laws related to the operation of railway service through an ordinance.
The minister reportedly made such remark on Tuesday (November 30) while inspecting the physical infrastructure prepared for the operation of the train from Kurtha in Dhanusha to Jayanagar of India. Minister Yadav said that the government has taken steps to bring necessary legislation as it has not been possible to operate the train due to lack of law.
"The government has prepared an ordinance for the laws required for the operation of the railways," the state-owned national news agency RSS quoted Minister Yadav as saying.
According to RSS, Minister Yadav said that the law would be brought through an ordinance after the documents are finalized. She shared that the Prime Ministers of India and Nepal will jointly inaugurate the railway through virtual means after the necessary laws, staff management and budget have been determined for the operation of the railway.
On the occasion, General Manager of Nepal Railway Company Niranjan Jha briefed Minister Yadav about the progress made so far in terms of railway operation. Minister Yadav was accompanied by Director General of Department of Railway Deepak Bhattarai and Mayor of Janakpurdham Sub-Metropolis Lal Kishor Saha, RSS reported.
