Defense Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal,’ has said that the process of integration of army will be completed between three to six months.

Talking to reporters in Itahari, Tuesday – where he had gone to inspect flood affected regions – Minister Thapa said that a special committee will be formed to initiate the process.

He also urged everyone not to doubt the process of integration at a time when the ‘Nepalis people have voted Maoists to form the government and the Nepali Army has vowed to carry out the instructions of the government.’

Meanwhile, reports say that the Defense Minister has said that Nepal will not continue to wait for India for renovation of Kosi embankments.

“We waited for a few days. But now we will start mobilising internal resources to repair the embankments in a permanent manner,” he is quoted in newspaper reports as saying
