KATHMANDU, Aug 20: The Minister of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation, Rabindra Adhikari, said that the country has lagged behind due to outdated ideas about development. Speaking at the 6th general assembly of the Fastfood Association of Nepal, he said that the outdated ideas about development must be changed before the country can see real development.

Minister Adhikari argued that all the activities of the country must be conducted 24 hours a day for it to actually develop, pointing out that if the important industries, factories, hotels, and major cities are active at all times of day, the country can see a great deal of progress. He also said that the major challenges of Kathmandu city are road management and controlling air pollution, and that if these aspects are brought under control, then the tourism industry will grow exponentially.

He claimed that the heritage reconstruction works for earthquake-damaged heritage structures are taking place effectively and that all reconstruction works would be completed within a year.
