Parsa (Birgunj), Mar. 21 - Hotel business in Birgunj is on the verge of collapse due repeated strikes, shutdowns, donation spree and increasing insecurity in the town.
Hoteliers of Birgunj are worried after the number of passengers staying in their hotels went down due to increasing insecurity. According to the chairman of Hotel Entrepreneurs’ Association Parsa, Krishna Man Shrestha, some hotel entrepreneurs have already left Birgunj quitting business after being affected by repeated strikes, shutdowns, donation terror and death threats to the hoteliers.
The number of passengers staying even in the A class hotels in the town has decreased these days because of insecurity. Hotel Makalu, Bhiswa, Suraj and Diyalo are among the A class hotels operated in Birgunj. People arriving the town from other places in connection with woks return at the same say due to rising insecurity, said proprietor of Hotel Makalu Deepak Shrestha. Around two dozens of hotels are in operation in Birgunj, one of the major business centers of the country.
