Regular flights in two int’l airports soon: PM Dahal

Kathmandu, April 4: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said government was at work to conduct regular international flights from Pokhara and Gautam Buddha International Airports soon.

Responding to the questions of lawmakers at Public Policy and Delegated Legislation Committee of the National Assembly on Thursday, PM Dahal informed that talks were being held with the Indian government for the air route to Gautam Buddha International Airport, while similar dialogues were continued for direct flights with China and Sri Lanka from the airports.

Similarly, he shared that efforts were on to convert the loan received from Chinese government into a grant in relations to Pokhara International Airport.

According to him, government was in action for reviving sick industries of Hetauda, Butwal, Janakpur, and Biratnagar cities. The process of embankment construction along the Koshi River was underway.

The meeting witnessed PM’s commitment to increase production through irrigation facilities by promoting projects and land reforms.

Land reform works are not simply the distribution of the land ownership certificates to the landless squatters but creation of foundation of socialism, the PM reminded.

He also informed lawmakers on government’s seriousness towards justice and relief to the families of the martyrs, injured and missing persons of the conflict-era.

He believed the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Bill would be finalized by the parliamentary committee soon. #nepal #airport
