    Mohan Vaidya, KiranThe CPN-Maoist has said that its attention was drawn to the news regarding the preparations for project development agreement (PDA) between the Investment Board of Nepal Government and Indian company GMR for the development of Upper Karnali Hydropower Project.

    Issuing a press statement today, CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidhya has objected to the move stating that the deal would be a step for India’s monopoly on Nepal’s water resources.

    “We urge for maintaining national consensus for striking a deal based on national interests, and not to strike a deal of this kind,” Baidhya said.
