Tourism promo protested



KATHMANDU: Dharmodaya Sabha, an organisation of Buddhists, today objected to a tourism promotional material titled ‘The Path’ published by Uttar Pradesh Tourism Board.

The Sabha objected to the promotional material for mentioning that Kapilvastu lies in India. In a press release issued yesterday, the Sabha stated that government apathy towards protecting and promoting Kapilvastu Palace in Tilaurakot was the main reason behind such misleading publicity.

It also stated that a special committee has been constituted for taking concrete steps to ensure the protection and promotion of Kapilvastu area in coordination with governmental and non-governmental organisations and concerned bodies.


There needs to be more promotion of this sacred spot which is part of any Buddhist pilgrim's destination route. So much effort and money has gone into developing this place, much of it misused. Only a stupid local officialdom would oppose the efficient development of all aspects infrastructure, including Bhiarowa Airport. Suraj Rajbhandhari, Putali Sadak, Kathmandu
