Nepal Government has decided to take ownership of Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium and complete the project. As per Ekantipur, The decision was made by the meeting of the Council of Ministers held on Monday.
Dhurmus Suntali Foundation’s plan to build a stadium in Chitwan has been put on hold for a number of years due to the lack of funds. The stadium’s construction was halted when actors Sitaram Kattel and Kunjana Ghimire turned it over to the Bharatpur Metropolitan City, claiming they were unable to repay the 180 million loan taken out for the project.
A few weeks ago, Kattel, the founder of the foundation, called on the government to take ownership of the stadium.
After the decision of the Council of Ministers on Monday, the construction of the cricket stadium in Chitwan will go ahead. According to reports, the stadium’s parapet’s initial phase has been finished. Construction was put on hold while 286 pillars for a parapet with 3,000 spectator seats were being lifted and buried in the square. Eight pitches and other projects are still unfinished, according to Kattel.
According to Kattel, he has worked with loans up to this point, spending a total of 54 crores, of which 16 crores have been loaned. According to Kattel, they had to halt the project because it required spending a significant sum of money all at once, and they were unable to do it.
