Swollen Theule rivulet obstructs Kaligandaki corridor

Dhorpatan (Baglung), July 3: The incessant rain triggered flood in the Theule rivulet has swept away the road completely halting the Kaligandaki corridor.  

The flooded rivulet based in Jaimini municiplaity-1 of Baglung has fully obstructed the vehicular movement to Muktinath, Butwal, Bhairahawa, Kapilvastu and Dang.    

Information Officer at the District Police Office, Baglung, DSP Bijaya Yadav said vehicles coming to Baglung bazaar from various places of Jaimini municipality such as Wainkuna, Zaidi, Chhishti, Arjewa and Binamare and Bareng rural municipality have been stranded due to the blockade of the corridor.    

He said efforts would be made to open the corridor after the rain stops. The rain for the past few days has damaged the mid-hill highway, a project of national pride. In particular, about 15 kilometers of road from Hatia of Galkot municipality-3 to Handikhola of Badigad rural municipality-2 has been damaged. Spokesperson of Galkot municipality, Him Bahadur Bhandari, however, said that the highway has come into operation after clearing the landslide debris. (RSS)
