Kathmandu, July 7 (ANI): Refuting reports of change in Nepal government, Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli on Thursday said the incumbent government might be expanded in few days.

Oli was addressing the national consultation seminar entitled 'Challenges seen in land management and solution' organised by the Ministry of Land Reform and Management in Kathmandu.

"The talk of government change is only a rumour. It will not be perturbed," the Kathmandu Post quoted Oli as saying.

He said that his government would implement the plans as per its policy and programmes.

Minister for Land Reform and Management Ram Kumar Subba during the event said that although it was the responsibility of his Ministry to protect the immovable property of all the citizens, the record-keeping system in the ministry was not reliable.

Other leaders present in the event acknowledged that managing the landless squatters was a challenge and that many should be issued with the landownership certificates. (ANI)
