Foreign ministry building in danger of collapse?

The Republican building that houses the foreign affairs ministry is in danger of collapse, a weekend newspaper reports.

Built during the colonial rule, it is without proper maintenance by plumbers and electricians, while the internal telephone system too, has malfunctioned after the contract expired.

There are rumours that the newspaper that published the report belongs to a senior minister, who is likely to be given the foreign ministry at a cabinet reshuffle.

He is unwilling to have his office at the Republican building, and hence the report.
