Dumping disruption threat

KATHMANDU: A group of persons identifying themselves as members of the Okharpauwa Landfill Site Struggle Committee has threatened to obstruct the dumping of garbage collected from the valley at the landfill site beginning tomorrow.

"We’ll block the waste disposal at Aletar from tomorrow until the government commits in writing to carrying out development projects for locals," said Ramesh Prasad Paudel, the self-acclaimed coordinator of the struggle committee. In a press meet, Paudel said their talks with the government had failed.
