BIRGUNJ: Minister for Industry, Tourism and Forest in Madhes Province, Sunita Yadav, has said province government was eager to develop Thori as a tourist hub.
Minister Yadav viewed a perspective plan that was being made to develop Thori as a tourism hub of the entire country.
“Only allocation of budget does not suffice. It needs a master plan to carry out,” he said, urging the people to be assured of future development of Thori as a touristy destination.
On the occasion, Chairman of Thori Rural Municipality, Lal Bahadur Shrestha, however, worried that although assurance of budget continued in the name of developing and promoting Thori Valley, the government policy and programmes failed to include it.
He reminded that erstwhile Chief Minister of Madhes Province, Lal Babu Rauta, announced that he would provide Rs 100 million for Thori area, but the government neither gave budget nor included it in policy and program.
