City Hall seats ‘need more spacing’
Nov 18, 2014-
Renovation and maintenance works at the main venue for the 18th Saarc Summit, City Hall, were over on Tuesday, except for the seating arrangement that requires redoing. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Local Development Prakash Man Singh inspected the venue on the day.
After media reports that the seating arrangement needed readjustment, DPM Singh, after conducting a quick experiment, instructed the officials concerned to correct it. A parliamentary panel recently visited the Hall and instructed the government to improve the passages that are narrow to ensure easy movement of participants.
DPM Singh also inspected the roads being expanded and ordered contractors to complete the tasks on time particularly at Ranipokhari, Ratnapark, Singha Durbar gate and the Maitighar area. One week to go, several works of city beautification remain incomplete.
