LAMJUNG: The Finance and Development Committee under the Gandaki State Assembly has inspected the Besisahar-Chame road section damaged by the incessant rains.

The Committee also comprising its chair Deepak Koirala highlighted the need of working through a fast track to restoring the route, promising to suggest the government the same. The rains have damaged the road at several locations: Kharkhare Cliff at Besisahar municipality-7, Belautibesina, Bhulbhule, Arkhare, and Ghopte Bhir (cliff) of Marsyangdi rural municipality. At Ghopte Bhir, earth has been swept away by the rain waters and it is yet to be mended. The chair pledged to put pressure on bodies concerned for finding a sustainable restoration of the road. It was a matter of concern that budget allocation for the road was too less and on the top of that allocated budget got frozen, the Committee chair said.

On the occasion, Marsyangdi folks apprised the team that they had no way to traveling along the road by risking their lives for years mainly during monsoon. The condition of the road is undesirable, according to them. This has caused a grave inconvenience for them. Gandaki SA member Madhumaya Adhikari, Committee members Dobate Bishwakarma, Sarita Gurung, Hari Sharan Acharya, Chief District Officer Krishna Prasad Sharma, District Coordination Committee Lamjung chief Lokraj Pandey, Besishahar municipality mayor Gumansingh Aryal, Marsyangdi rural municipality chair Arjun Gurung and District Police Office’s deputy superintendent of police Ganga Bahadur Thapa were in the team.
