The government will relocate the official residence of ministers from Harihar Bhawan, Pulchowk, to Sainbu Bhaisepati, Lalitpur, on the 149 ropanies of land acquired for the purpose.

The Cabinet meeting on Thursday decided to build 10 State Guest Houses in the compound of the current ministerial quarters in Phulchowk. If the land is insufficient, the government land nearby, that currently houses the National Library, would be used.

According to a statement issued by the Minister for Information and Communications Gokul Banskota, the government has decided to build 27 residential and 14 office buildings in Bhaisepati, for the National Assembly chairperson, the vice chairperson, and the House deputy Speaker and ministers. After the 14 official buildings are constructed, they would be used as offices and residences for province chief, and chief ministers.

The government said it would delegate to the Ministry of Urban Development the responsibility to build a landfill site plus the necessary infrastructure, and a 15-meter tall dam in Bancharedanda, Nuwakot district, to dispose the garbage collected from Kathmandu Valley.

Minister Banskota also said the government has decided to turn the residence of great Nepali poet Laxmi Prasad Devkota into museum.
