The issue of Haa Wangchuk Lo Dzong was raised yet again in the National Council, yesterday. MP Tshering Dorji asked the home and cultural affairs minister when the people of Haa would get back their dzong back.
The Deputy Chairperson, Tshering Dorji said Haa Dzong’s historical importance has faded away over the years since it became the IMTRAT Headquarters in 1988.
The home and cultural affairs minister, Damcho Dorji said the current Dzong functions as the training centre that ultimately strengthens the armed forces. “I cannot say exactly when the Dzong would be returned to the people.”
As of today, about 75 percent of the renovation and construction of new Lhakhangs near the old Lhakhang are complete.
