Bajura, August 1

The locals of Martadi Bazaar are facing problems due to the dilapidated road in the bazaar area, in Badimalika Municipality, Bajura. The road has turned muddy after the contractor failed to repair it on time.

People are facing difficulty even to walk on the 170-metre stretch of the road from Division Forest Office to District Public Health Office. The locals accused the contractor of neglecting the road repair works.

Roshan Shrestha, a book shop owner, said construction work was yet to finish even though the road was supposed to completed before the arrival of monsoon. “Vehicles plying the muddy road face risk of accidents,” he added.

The residents said the municipality had demolished houses on the road after providing compensation, but the condition of the road has remained the same.

Students, elderly and patients, among others, were badly affected in the bazaar area due to muddy road.

District Hospital Chief Dr Rup Chandra Bishowkarma said it was very difficult for patients to reach the hospital due to condition of the road. “Local businessmen, entrepreneurs and everybody were facing problems due to the rough road,” he added.

Similarly, the Tufan Danda-Triben Chowk road is also awaiting repairs.

Dunihat Bazaar Management Committee Chairman Mohan Lal Nepali said problems had also occurred due to the municipality’s ignorance.
