Cleaning up has started in the Bouddha Chuchepati area and preparations have begun at the Hyatt Regency, where Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will stay during his Nepal visit.
As it will be convenient for the Indian PM to visit Pashupatinath temple, Hyatt Regency has been chosen as the Indian PM’s residence during his state visit. Police Inspector Damodar Dawadi of the Metropolitan Police Circle, Boudhha says: “Security preparations have also started in that connection”.
The premises of the hotel and its surroundings have been cleaned and the grass on the lawns trimmed. Similarly, the hotel garden has also been tidied up. The cleaning works at the hotel started on Thursday.
The Nepal Army, the Armed Police Force, Nepal Police, the National Investigation Department and the security officials at the Indian embassy have inspected the suite where the Indian PM will stay and other physical facilities at the hotel have been through security scrutiny, according to Dawadi.
The Indian PM is coming on a two-day official visit to Nepal on August 3. Post IK Gujral’s state visit to Nepal in 1997, there hasn’t been any official bilateral visit of an Indian Prime Minster to Nepal.
The last Indian PM to visit Nepal was Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2002 but his visit was for the SAARC Summit.
The incumbent Indian PM Modi is scheduled to visit the Pashupatinath Temple on August 4 and offer a special worship there.
