PM directs to maintain valley roads within 15 days

07/16/2017

Kathmandu, July 16: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has directed the officials concerned to ensure better quality of the roads in the Kathmandu valley within 15 days.
Inviting the ministers, chief secretary of the government, secretaries of the ministries, officials overseeing roads, drinking water supply and electricity, and chiefs of the related departments in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) today, Prime Minister Deuba directed to immediately fix the potholes on the roads and cracked drains in the capital city.
The PM's such directive comes after a three grader Binita Phuyal died after being swept away in the drain water in Nepaltar on Friday afternoon. Likewise, Satya Sapkota was rescued from Samakhusi in a different yet similar kind of incident.
The PM directed the officials of the concerned bodies to work in a coordinated fashion to resolve such incidents.
"We should address people's problems at any cost. The roads in the town are like ponds. The school children have fallen into drains. The roads in the metropolitan city are disgusting. Fix the potholes immediately. I will provide additional budget if needed," the PM directed the officials.
PM Deuba has also directed the officials to resolve the problems even by deploying in the fields.
Saying that he does not want to see the poor status of roads anymore, PM Deuba has given a 15-day ultimatum to the officials to maintain the roads.
During the meeting, the PM directed the officials of Nepal Telecom, Nepal Electricity Authority and the Department of Roads to work in coordination while constructing the roads and their respective jobs.
Likewise, the PM directed to prepare a plan for the integrated development project of the Kathmandu Valley. (RSS)
