On the occasion, Sharma stressed on the need for making the 'Bright Nepal Campaign' a success for country's prosperity.

Power outage lifted nationwide Minister Sharma said the routine power outage has been lifted across the country coinciding with the start of the Secondary Education Examination (SEE), and added that the government planned to give continuity to it.

Similarly, Secretary of the Ministry of Water and Energy Commission, Madhusudan Adhikari, argued that the effective outcomes were not being achieved albeit the widespread utilization of water in all sectors in the absence of integrated policies and plans.
