On Thursday, a meeting of the Delegated Management and Government Assurance Committee under the National Assembly directed the government to retrofit and repair the old parliament building at Singha Durbar.

"We found that the old parliament building inside the Singha Durbar, built in 2016 BS, has suffered some damage due to the earthquake. We have been discussing with everyone whether to rebuild it or to preserve the building by retrofitting it again” he said, “This committee has called the secretaries of the Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation and given them this instruction.”
The members of the National Assembly present at the meeting emphasized that the buildings of the Federal Parliament including the library should be completed on time and with quality.
