How do you look at the decision of the Special Court?
I have always dedicated my life to the overall development of the country. When CIAA filed the case against me, many said that there is a future in the country in people like me. The decision of the court shows my strong belief that I will get justice was correct. I am an honest civil servant. The court recognized my honesty and integrity. I will complete my responsibility in the tourism sector.
Whom do you give the credit in all this?
The whole credit goes to the court which examined all the evidences and finally took the decision. The credit also goes to the 1400 employees of Nepal Airlines. Ninety percent of them stood strongly behind us. These employees opposed the wrong steps of CIAA. Media persons and other intellectuals also backed us during the hard time. I think all 30 million people were with us. All Nepalese were united in the cause to strengthen the national flag career for the tourism sector. There is no alternative to a strong national career to develop tourism in Nepal.
How do you view the state of NA now?
All the employees of NA are united for the cause. The employees have shown that they are not going to be a silent spectator in case any harm is done against Nepal Airlines.
How will you precede with your plan to purchase the aircraft?
I cannot proceed with the old purchasing process. But I am sure that Nepal Airlines needs aircraft. You cannot keep airlines without new aircraft. This should be the priority.
How do you find the response?
I am very proud that if somebody does a good job honestly, all the people stand solidly behind him. In my case, I found love, courage and care from all.
