Ranitari-Harkapur-Dulegaunda road construction snail-paced

Damauli, June 16

Twenty years on, the Ranitari-Harkapur-Dulegaunda road project of Tanahun hasn’t been completed yet.

Though the track of the road was opened years ago, no vehicles run on the road as the widening and black-topping of the road have yet to be completed. Locals have attributed the delay to lack of budget.

“The main reason for the delay is lack of budget. Besides, the concerned authorities are largely remiss about what is happening and how the project is faring,” said local Shreebhadra Acharya of Manpang.

According to chairperson of the road construction committee, Bir Bahadur Thapa, more than five million rupees has been spent on the project till date.
