GULMI, Sept 24: The Badighat River Hydro Power Project located at Neta VDC – 2 in Gulmi is yet to resume operation after a flooding in the river swept away 100 meters of canal.
Two months ago, the teeming monsoon rain had caused the Badi river to swell. The electric power service was obstructed after the canal was swept away.
More than two thousand students enrolled at various schools have been affected in the absence of electric power, Project's Chairman, Ram Raj Ghimire said. More than thousand businesses have shut down in Gulmi and Baglung.
Ghimire assured that the project would be resorted before the onset of the festive season which is just around the corner. RSS
