During an interaction programme organized by the city with the chiefs of academic institutions, they shared that the municipality is required to bring policy and programme to create jobs opportunity and make the graduates self-reliant. They also underscored the need of employment generating policy and programme in view of rising trend of foreign labour migration. On the occasion, Mayor of Butwal Sub-Metropolitan City Khelraj Pandey said that the role of public and private sector is equally important to maintain leading role of Butwal in the education sector. Mayor Pandey vowed to address the issue from the sub-metropolitan if they come under its scope and capacity, and others would be incorporated through the federal and province levels.
