Marxist protests handing of TIA security to Indian company

KATHMANDU: Communist Party of Nepal (United Marxist) has taken serious exception to the government’s preparation to hand over responsibility to foreigner Indian Company for upgrade, improvement and management of the Tribhuwan International Airport

Issuing a press release today, the party has said that it has raised serious question as to why the government is heading to award contract to IL and FS Indian Company through the newly-formed Investment Board by ignoring the efforts of Civil Aviation Authority to initiate the upgrading of the airport with the ADB’s loan assistance and on own resources.

‘Earlier too a proposal to appoint Air Marshal in the only international airport of Nepal in the name of Indian security was foiled after protests from different sides. It would in no way be acceptable to Nepali people and the country if it was a ploy to hand over the management of sensitive airport to India in the current transition and fragile situation of Nepal’, said party Chairperson Lok Narayan Subedi in a press release.
