Govt to develop tourist spots

SANISCHARE: Minister for Local Development Purna Kumar Sherma Limbu has voiced the government’s commitment towards the development of religious and tourist sites across the country.

Minister Limbu said this while talking to journalists after inaugurating the boating festival organized by the local women’s group at Biratpokhara, Anarmani, today.

The boating event was organized on the occasion of Teej festival. The minister said that the government would provide whatever assistance possible for the development of Biratpokhara, a place of historical significance in Jhapa district.

The minister also stressed that the local people should themselves strive for the development of their area.

He said the government will bring special programmes for the reconstruction of the physical infrastructure damaged by floods and landslides and for the management of rescue and relief to the flood-affected people.

Minister Limbu ruled out any change of government and said the reason why the Maoist-led government collapsed was its own shortcomings and also because it lost the confidence of the House majority.

He also claimed the new Constitution would be drafted within the stipulated time and sought the cooperation of all to that end.
