The Government of India has agreed to build a bridge over the Mahakali River on the Nepal-India border in Darchula. The decision was taken at a cabinet meeting of India on Thursday, Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur said on press conference.

There is a problem in crossing the border as there is no bridge in Mahakali. The people of Darchula have to depend on Tuin to come to Nepal from Nepal. Some lives have been lost while crossing Tuin.

The Nepalese government has long been urging India to reach a consensus on building a bridge over the Mahakali River in Darchula. But India was not ready. Now Indian cabinet on Thursday approved the signing of an agreement to build a bridge between the two countries. Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur informed that the agreement would be signed soon. He said that the construction of the bridge will be completed in the next three years. ‘The bridge will benefit the people of Uttarakhand, India and Nepal. Trade and brotherhood between the two countries will be further strengthened, ‘he said.
