GORKHA, Dec 18: Nepal Army has completed most of the reconstruction of earthquake-devastated Laprak village at Darche rural municipality-4 in Gorkha.

The national army had taken the responsibility of rebuilding the village after the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) could not complete the reconstruction project. Since 2016, the NA had been extending its labor support to completing the remaining tasks of the reconstruction project.

So far, 90% of the reconstruction works have been completed. The NRNA will carry out remaining reconstruction in collaboration with the local residents, according to NRNA president Kumar Pant. Pant had visited Laprak a few days ago to see the pace of the reconstruction.

"Our team deployed for the reconstruction of the village has returned leaving the temporary camp built there," battalion commander at Rana Singh Battalion in Gorkha Ujjwal K.C said.

According to him, a total of 17625 skilled and semi-skilled workforces were involved in the reconstruction project. 

According to the ward chairman of Darche-4, Nepal Army worked 24/7 to complete the project. "It would be impossible to complete the project if the Nepal Army had not worked 24/7," he said.
