GULMI, July 22: The vehicular movement has been halted along the Chorkote-Shantipur road section after the landslide blocked the road in the district on Friday night.

The electricity and communication lines have been hit in the region after the electric poles were damaged by the landslide. The pregnant and ailing individuals are the hardest hit due to road obstruction.

The locals have requested the concerned authority to resume the roadway before communication or electricity lines as they may take longer time to re-build than the former.

The chief of rural municipality Drona Bahadur Khatri said the efforts are being made to clear debris on the main road and repair the transmission lines.

“The plan is to clear one-way passage of the road by Sunday morning if no more landslide occurs” he added.
