Power News - Bohora behind Nepal Oil Corporation Land Scam

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha September 10, 2017 :
The Netra Bikram Chand-led CPN-Maoist has demanded proper investigation into the land scam involving Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) and stern action against the people involved in the embezzlement of millions of rupees. According to the leaders of the party, the state has incurred a huge financial loss in the land procurement deal of NOC. By organizing a press meet at Jutpani of Sarlahi on Sunday, the Chand-led party urged the authorities concerned to scrutinize the land deals of the state-owned petroleum monopoly. Sandesh Paudel, the party’s in-charge of Janakpur Bureau, accused the NOC of embezzling Rs 210 million while purchasing land in Lalbandi Municipality-1 of Sarlahi for building an oil storage depot. “Our party conducted a small investigation into the whole controversy and found that the state had to bear a great financial loss due to NOC’s land scam,” Paudel said. Not just that, the party has claimed the involvement of political leaders, contractors and officials of Land Revenue Office in the embezzlement.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
