Dang District, March 5, 2023: The Netra Bikram Chand-led Communist Party of Nepal blocked the Ghorahi-Tulsipur road section for half an hour today.

The Chand-led CPN’s Tulsipur Town Committee blocked the road from 11 AM to 11:30 AM at Hattikhauwa in Tulsipur on Sunday morning saying that the construction of the Ghorahi-Tulsipur four lane road section should be completed.

The Chand-led CPN has warned that if the road construction does not start, there will be more agitation. The 25 km long road from the Babai River in Ghorahi of Dang to Hattikhauwa in Tulsipur has remained in a dilapidated state for the past four years.

Only 10 percent of the road, whose contract was awarded to the Indian construction company Fact Engineering & Infra Pvt Ltd, has been completed in four years. Locals have to suffer from dust and mud all year round as the road is left incomplete.
