Chitwan, November 17
Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism Yogesh Bhattarai says the government will soon give its nod to begin construction of the proposed second international airport in Nijadh, Bara.
Minister Bhattarai, who is in Chitwan to attend the World Rangers’ Conference, also says the government is thinking of renaming the airport in view of its geographical location.
“We have sent the EIA report to the forest ministry. Officials there are studying the report. The two ministries are working to finalise a joint proposal to send to the cabinet,” said Bhattarai. After the proposal is approved, it will be clear which modality will be adopted to build the airport.
