KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Education has been found to have been publicised as one of the partner organisers of the 7th ECAN education fair without approval of the Ministry.
The fair that began in the capital on Thursday was inaugurated by UML Chairman Jhalanath Khanal.
The Ministry's logo has been used in the inaugural banner of the education fair and in advertisements. But spokesperson at the Ministry Mahasharma Sharma said he was not aware of the organisers taking approval to do so.
However, fair coordinator of Education Consultancies Association of Nepal (ECAN) Bishnu Hari Pandey said a formal request was made to the Ministry for a partnership and claimed that the Ministry continued to remain a partner as in the previous years.
