KATHMANDU, Nov 7: Residents of Kalopul and Sifal Chaur urged Nepali Congress’s candidate Gagan Thapa to bring tougher laws against underperforming contractors during Thapa's door-to-door campaign today. Residents expressed the pain that they’ve been facing, especially with delayed road construction in the area and complained of lack of accountability of contractors. Current government provision does not incorporate scrapping contractors in cases of poor performances. As a result, development works get delayed.

Residents of Sifal also urged Thapa to resolve the current road construction halt from Himalayan Bidhya Mandir to Sifal Chaur. Laxmi Karki of Gyaneshwor thanked the former Minister for progressive works in sectors of health and education and expressed the same in upcoming years.

Thapa, who is competing in the upcoming elections from Kathmandu - 4 said that ensuring affordable, accessible and quality education and health were his key agendas. Thapa, during a house-to-house campaign today at Kalopul and Sifal, said that he’d follow up the detailed proposal that he has submitted on contractors.
