Eastern border eased

Jhapa, January 20

Petroleum products and other goods are now entering easily from the eastern border point of Kakadbhitta, in Jhapa.

The situation has become normal as it was earlier. Mechi Customs Office said that all the loaded vehicles entered from Panitanki, India, without any obstruction.

Chief Bhim Prasad Adhikari of the office said the supply was said to have eased as heavy trucks carrying goods have entered the country without any disturbance.

“There is no disturbance in the border area and the supply has completely eased,” he informed. Adhikari further added that there was no problem in parking vehicles that had entered as they had managed a yard for parking.

It is said that normalcy has returned in the east after the eastern border opened. It is also said fuel was available at different petrol pumps.

Petroleum entrepreneurs, however, said that the supply has yet to be eased.They said it would take some time for normalcy to return due to the prolonged blockade.

The petrol pumps are providing fuel in the east.
