Reflecting India’s continued commitment in complementing the efforts of Nepal to create infrastructure in priority sectors on Monday, a Drinking Water Supply Project in Solukhumbu District, built under India’s financial assistance, was inaugurated in Monday.

It was inaugurated jointly by Sonam Gyalzen Sherpa, Member, National Assembly & Priyadharsini R, First Secy, Embassy of India in Kathmandu.

"This is one of the 75 projects being inaugurated this year in Nepal as part of ‘India@75 Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ which celebrates 75 years of India’s independence," the Indian Embassy in Nepal said on Twitter.

This marks yet another milestone in bilateral cooperation and also an important reflection of the priority attached by India to its partnership with Nepal.

The creation of infrastructure under India-Nepal Development Cooperation reflects the continued support of the Government of India in bolstering the efforts of the Government of Nepal in community development.
