Continuing its anti-India tirade, Nepal’s main opposition party—the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) has asked an Indian firm to stop work on the 300 mw Upper Karnali hydro-power project.

The party has asked GMR-ITD Consortium, to stop work on the project located in the area bordering Surkhet, Accham and Dailekh districts stating that it was not in Nepal’s favour. In a press conference on Monday, UCPN (M) politburo member Khadka Bahadur Biswakarma stated that the decision to halt work on the project was taken as per policy of the party.
