Dhangadhi shut over six-lane road construction row
Dhangadhi, Kailali, Jan 19: Dhangadhi has been shut today demanding that the under-construction six-lane road be retained.
The road construction halted recently following a protest erupted in the course of pulling down structures on the road for the project.
According to the Public Roads Act, 2031, width of the road should be 82 feet opposed to Dhangadhi Municipality which passed the blueprint to build a house on 75 feet land.
Following the agitation, the Supreme Court gave a stay order on the project in response to the writ petition filed by 13 households putting forth various demands including compensation for destroying the structures along the road.
