KATHMANDU- Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said the basis for political stability is in the making in the country.
He said this in a program after laying down the foundation stone for the construction of the terminal building and expansion of Bharatpur Airport here today.
The PM asserted that political stability would be established in the country henceforth.
Stating that he is responsible for giving a new impetus to Nepal’s political stability, PM Dahal said, “I am confident that the political stability will also get new basis. My character and specialty are to accommodate all.”
He added that he was committed to taking ahead the whole nation towards the direction of development and prosperity by forging broader unity.
According to him, the initiation of construction of the terminal building and expansion of flights at Bharatpur Airport now carried separate significance. Flights to and from Bharatpur started 62 years back.
The Prime Minister said the operation of flights by 72-seat capacity plane would be possible in Bharatpur with the completion of the project and expressed the belief it will contribute to boost up the national economy and not only that of Chitwan.
He said the government is engaged in resolving the problems of the two international airports which have come into operation in Nepal of late.
“I will discuss with importance the matter of the route of international flight during my visit to our neighbouring countries,” PM Dahal said, adding the matter of seeking route for international flight from the Lumbini Airport would be discussed during his visit to India and regarding the Pokhara Airport during his visit to China.
He also said the government has given importance to and expedited the construction of the Nijgadh Airport. Construction of Nijgadh Airport would be moved ahead along with the construction of the Expressway.
Noting that works on construction of Meghauli Airport in Chitwan have also been started, he said flights from this airport would be operated soon.
PM Dahal believed that development and expansion of the airport would work as a new milestone in terms of tourism development in Chitwan.
On a separate topic, he said work would be started soon for construction of international cricket stadium in Chitwan by resolving the associated problems in one or two weeks.
