Faulty telephones make users wait

Charikot, October 31:

People from Dolakha have been forced to wait hours to make a telephone call in Charikot.

Though people from rural areas come to make calls at the district headquarter, they have to wait for long hours to make a call, as dial tone is not available for hours on the telephone. “When somebody makes a call, a customer has to wait for more than half an hour to make another call. So people from rural areas who come from distant places face problems in making calls,” said proprietor of a PCO in Charikot, Balaram Thapa.

“We feel sorry when patients who come for treatment at our medical centre could not make call to their relatives from the phones,” said Manoj Shrestha of Gaurishankar Medical in Charikot.

The problem in telephone has also been affecting journalists.

“I can not send news early due to the problem in telephones,” said, correspondent of Image channel.
