Surunga (Jhapa), Jan 29: Home Minister Shakti Bahadur Basnet today said that the first priority of the government is to make society peaceful, prosperous and better governed.
He said that the issue of boundary delineation raised by the agitating parties would be sorted out through a political mechanism to be formed in this regard.
He also said that the obstructed border points would be opened in some days, thus helping ease smooth supply of goods into Nepal and the black marketeering prevailing taking advantage of Indian unofficial border blockade would end.
When asked about reports about his party quitting the government, minister Basnet, also UCPN (Maoist) leader, dismissed the reports as rumours. He instead said that efforts were underway to make the government effective.
