KATHMANDU, June 26: Former prime minister and chairman of CPN (Maoist Centre) Pushpa Kamal Dahal accused the state of neglecting the tourism sector. He made the announcement while speaking at a medal fitting and handover program organized by the Nepal Mountaineering Association on Friday.
Stating that the tourism sector has a significant role to play in resolving the economic crisis in the country, Dahal said the role of the state has not been satisfactory to amend, change and promote laws in the sector. “The tourism sector will never be empty and will never end. The more you spend on the tourism sector, the more it grows in contrast to other sectors,” he said.
