KATHMANDU, Aug 10: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Jitendra Dev, has expressed dissatisfaction over zilch work on construction of Lumbini International Airport in Bhairahawa.

During an interaction here Wednesday, Minister Dev wondered why there was not any work initiated for the construction of the regional airports in Lumbini and Nijgadh which fall under the national pride projects. "I've been acquiring information about the progress on the national pride projects which fall under the Ministry. Works on only Pokhara airport was begun. It is likely to compete in four years. Construction of other airports will also begin."

Minister Dev further said he had directed the departments and division under the Ministry to closely coordinate with the National Reconstruction Authority in order to accelerate the re-construction of the heritage sites damaged by the 2015 earthquake.
