PM Deuba urges NRNs to return to help develop their motherland


New Delhi, Aug. 23: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has urged the Nepalis involved in various occupations in India to return home to help develop their country.
Prime Minister Deuba, who arrived here today on a five-day state visit, requested Nepali students pursuing higher studies to return home after completion of their studies. "The nation is in need of your knowledge and service," he said.
Addressing Nepalis gathered to welcome him at a reception hosted in his honour at the Nepali Embassy here, the Prime Minister said the Nepalis no matter where they are, in India or any part of the world, should work to enhance the pride of their nation. Furthermore, the Non-resident Nepalis in India should work as honorary ambassadors to further deepen the age-old good relations enjoyed by the two countries.
He also appealed to the Nepali community in India as well as the Indian industrialists and businesspersons to invest in Nepal, where abundant opportunities for investment and growth lies with stable political environment along with the implementation of the new constitution.
On the occasion, members of the Nepali community in India shared about the various problems they are facing in course of studies and business in the country, as well as the excesses of the Indian border security force against the Nepalis returning home from India.
Preparations underway to forge agreements: DPM Mahara
Meanwhile talking to media-persons at the embassy, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Krishna Bahadur Mahara said an agreement would be reached between the two countries on controlling smuggling of drugs across the bordering area.
Likewise, an agreement would also be reached on programmes determining quality in relation to industries, he informed, adding that an agreement would be signed to provide standard trademark to products of both the countries.
Another agreement to be reached with the Indian side touches on relief package pledged by Indian government for survivors of the earthquake of April 2015, and assistances to the post-quake reconstruction in Nepal.
On the occasion, Nepali ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhaya said Prime Minister Deuba's visit would focus on implementing old agreements reached with India, instead of signing new agreements. (Special Correspondent Yekraj Pathak), RSSĀ
