Jhapa, July 30: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Sudan Kirati, has said Nepal would buy new aircrafts soon. At a press meet organized by Press Centre Nepal Jhapa chapter here today, Minister Kirati argued aircrafts are essential for prosperity of landlocked country.
“Process is underway to purchase three new and two old aircrafts which would arrive in Kathmandu soon, but no commission at all,” he informed during the programme. Prosperity could be achieved by exporting Nepali products through Nepal’s ‘connection flights’, according to the Minister.
He also informed that he was reducing the corruption cases at ministry. He proudly shared that the Ministry had been successful to purchase new aircrafts even after paying the loan of Rs 4 billion. “Corruption is sinister in our country. It must be extirpated,” Minister Kirati underscored.
A national policy on tourism was being prepared, he said, adding that Nepali airport should be made safe with strict adherence to rule.
Indicating the problems on Koshi Province government, Minister Kirati viewed province government should be formed with participation of all political parties. “As the country is undergoing unstable situation at present, the governments at federal and province levels need to be formed based on consensus,” he stressed.
Moreover, in case of national development, there is no need of opposition.
