CHITWAN: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Sudan Kirati, has arrived in Chitwan to celebrate the Tihar festival with the Chepang community.

Talking to journalists at Bharatpur Airport today, he said that he has come here in Chitwan to celebrate Tihar festivities with the Chepangs.

“I want to see how the Chepang people celebrate the festival. I will participate in the Deusi-Bhailo cultural program with them,” he said. The Culture Minister expressed worry that the religion, culture and language of the Chepang community is on the verge of disappearance.

He stressed on the need of linking the Chepangs’ religion, language and culture with tourism for their protection and promotion.
