Security plan to open Thamel and Durbarmarg for 24 hours

Kathmandu, March 25: Discussions have been held on a security plan to open Thamel and Durbarmarg 24 hours a day.

A meeting was held at the District Administration Office Kathmandu today with concerned agencies and business persons about the preparations to open Thamel and Darbarmarg areas 24 hours a day. The discussion has started after Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane instructed to open Thamel and Durbarmarg areas 24 hours a day.

A security plan prepared by the District Security Committee to keep Thamel and Durbarmarg open round-the-clock was discussed.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief District Officer of Kathmandu Jitendra Basnet said a more integrated plan will be developed and implemented based on the problems and responses that will come after the market opens.

He said that a market management committee consisting of businesspersons and local residents will be formed or the existing committee will be given responsibility for business operations. CDO Basnet suggested that the price of goods and services should not be different during the day and at night.

Chief District Officer Basnet mentioned that a corresponding security system will be developed based on the assumption that criminal activities may increase compared to the present.

During the meeting, Chairperson of Thamel Tourism Development Council Bhabiswar Sharma said that the council had been demanding 24-hour business in Thamel for a long time.

Treasurer of Durbarmarg Development Board, Sanjay Adhikari, said that opening Durbar Marg 24 hours a day is appropriate in all respects.
