A good month after the government decided to ban citizens from entering Singha Darbar, the members of the cabinet are in no mood to reverse the decision. Even after security officials assured them that the common people
posed no threat to the central administration secretariat, the ministers want the ban to continue. Why allow people to enter? is what Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa, Information Minister Kamal Thapa and other ministers allegedly asked security officials. If we allow the general public in, there will be more disturbances. The official said the concerned agency tried to assure the cabinet that they were capable of maintaining security in the Singha Darbar complex.
