Kathmandu, January 6

The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has formed a committee to look into a recently surfaced dispute about opening a restaurant at the Narayanhiti Palace Museum premises.

Whereas the government has already postponed the project after it came into controversy, the ministry also formed a committee to find out if the agreement to let a private company open a restaurant there was legal.

Joint-Secretary Hom Prasad Luintel heads the five-member committee. Other members are the ministry’s undersecretaries Tek Narayan Paudel, Surya Mani Gautam and Purushottam Khatiwada. Likewise, Section Officer Tanka Bahadur Negi has been appointed the member-secretary.

The panel’s head Luintel says the committee has been mandated to study the legality of the rent agreement and the plan to open a restaurant and submit a report.
