Kathmandu, 15 July: The chief of Melamchi Drinking Water Supply Project Surya Raj Kadel has his own tanker business, raising serious concerns about conflict of interest.
He has been supplying water to various government and non-government organisations for a number of years. The company is under his wife Anju Khadka’s name and was registered in 2009. This raises a question about how Kadel became the chief of the drinking water project. He is the chairman of Water Tanker Association and is also lobbying to become the chief of Kathmandu Upatyaka Khanepani Limited, according to Annapurna Post daily.
