Salpasilichho and Aamchowk rural municipalities in Bhojpur are yet get access to electricity.
Locals in the rural municipalities have been compelled to live in darkness after the authority concerned paid no attention to set up the infrastructure required to connect the villages with electricity.

Nepal Electricity Authority, Bhojpur Distribution Centre Chief Rabi Babu Ghimire said the budget had been demanded for expanding power supply to the remaining areas.
He said power supply would be expanded to all areas of the district if the budget was released for the same.
