Vehicular disruption in Dang demanding dust control

DANG: Locals have brought the vehicular movement to standstill for an hour in Dang demanding dust control.

Construction of the one-kilometre road from Tulsipur Bazaar to Hattikhauwa Chowk under the Tulsipur-Ghorahi road section has not yet been completed despite the work being initiated long time back.

Locals have been bearing the brunt of delay in the road construction. The dust, which is the by-product of under constructed road, has caused serious threat to the public health.

Demanding blacktopping of the road without any delay, locals had halted the vehicular operation from 10:30 to 11:30 on Sunday morning.

"It is difficult for the children to go to school; there is no area without dust," lamented Basanta Khadgi, a local.
