KATHMANDU, August 7: Locals said that Kathmandu’s Kapan has been facing the problem of inundation due to the delay in the construction of a box culvert. They said that since the contractor could not complete the construction of the culvert on time and it is not clear how much time it will take more, there is no immediate solution to the inundation problem of Kapan. By mid-July this year, culverts 1400 meters in length should have been constructed, but only 160 meters have been constructed.

DARCHULA, Nov 20: Purnabas Municipality of Kanchanpur district allocated Rs 500,000 for the construction of a culvert some two years ago to facilitate the movement of the locals of Ananda Bazar.
