PM Dahal shifts to new office in Singha Durbar

KATHMANDU: The west face of the main building of Singha Durbar which was damaged by the 2015 earthquake has been rebuilt.

With the completion of the rebuilding works, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has officially moved to his new office. The inauguration ceremony took place today.

On the occasion, the Prime Minister said the relocation symbolized not just a change in location, but also his resolution to move ahead innovatively.

The 120-year-old structure was reconstructed while preserving its original architecture.

“We have transitioned from backward to forwards. In the previous office setup, I often felt a bit congested and would not feel much refreshed,” he said, adding that he found the new office chamber more spacious and refreshing and hoped that its atmosphere and surroundings will help him think more innovatively.

He also thanked the Urban Development Ministry and the team involved in the rebuilding process.

According to Urban Development Minister Sita Gurung, who was present on the occasion, now the project to retrofit the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers has been completed. The project costs Rs 4.2 million.
