Kathmandu, January 4:
Cabin and dance restaurantsâ€™ owners today demanded legal provisions to help monitor and regulate their activities.
Speaking at a â€˜Consultation to Facilitate Adoption of Code of Ethics in Cabin/Dance Restaurantsâ€™ organised by RAHAT, Manoj KC, president of the Association of Restaurant Entrepreneurs Nepal said, â€œA legal provision would help the law enforcing agencies to take action against any restaurant conducting illegal activities.â€
Such a law would define the activities permitted or not in the restaurants.
Bala Ram Sharma, deputy superintendent of police at Valley Crime Investigation Branch, said, a legal provision is must to make the restaurant owners accountable and also to improve their functioning pattern.
The Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare (MoWCSW) formed a committee under the coordination of joint secretary of MoWCSW to prepare a report regarding the restaurants to formulate the policies related to them and solve the problems faced by the restaurant entrepreneurs as well as employees in the restaurants.
