JHAPA, July 7: Youth Association Nepal Jhapa Chapter has padlocked the office of a tar industry located at Kankai Municipality of Jhapa district, reasoning that the tar produced there was of low quality.
Shiva Construction Service of Kankai Municipality-1 was padlocked because the tar it produced was found nonstandard. "The road blacktopped with the use of this industry's tar wore out very quickly," said Chapter Chairman Shambhu Bhandari.
Most of the tar produced by Shiva Construction Service was found of low standard, said central member of Youth Association Nepal, Trilochan Sapkota. Such things must not be used in construction activities, he added.
The move came after the locals complained about the wearing out of the road blacktopped with the use of the tar produced by Shiva Construction Service.
Meanwhile, industry proprietor Dr Dipak Kumar Singh argued that the asphalt his industry produced was not of low quality. RSS
