Suggestion to establish separate ' casino village '
Kathmandu: A parliamentary sub-committee has prepared a report to provide license to run casinos only after determining separate place for them.
The meeting of the International Relations and Labour Committee under the Legislature-Parliament approved the report presented by sub-committee coordinator Min Bahadur Bishwokarma that was formed to carry out a study on casinos’ operation.
He said that the report has pointed out the need of moving ahead by making the casino systematic though it was not an issue of pride to run the casinos. "It is necessary to assess its impacts on society. It is necessary to regulate, control and manage in time while giving permission to run the casinos."
The report has also suggested to make casino owners responsible and to guarantee welfare and rights including timely and decent salary for the workers.
On the occasion, members of the sub-committee also suggested the government to give permission to run casinos only after establishing a separate ‘casino village’ some five kilomteres away from the city area.
The committee members also suggested that the committee's directions should be implemented mandatorily and the committee should be made stronger.
They also said that the Nepal Airlines Corporation has been facing problems due to the game of commission and trying to stop from purchasing another aircraft. They expressed the view that delay in purchasing new aircraft has pushed the country back in tourism and development of aviation sector.
The lawmakers also questioned saying that is the work of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) was to obstruct the government.
The lawmakers also stressed that the process of the works of the government should be reviewed and amended as well as the parliamentary committee should not direct the government unnecessarily by going out from its jurisdiction.
Committee members Madhav Kumar Nepal, Bal Bahadur KC, Som Prasad Pandey, Ambar Sharma, Dr Rajan Bhattarai, Shyam Shrestha, Pemba Lama, Min Bahadur Bishwokarma and Lalbabu Pandit, among others shared about the studies and directions made by the committee in regard to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Labour and Employment, and Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation in last one year.
