Two thousand villagers yearning for a bridge
Meanwhile, absence of a bridge over a raging river located at the border between Myagdi and Baglung districts have created problems for the locals of villages in the area.
There is no problem during the winter season, but in monsoon the villagers cannot cross the river, said Dil Bahadur Thapa of Beni Municipality â€“ 3.
Hundreds of locals of Bimirabot, Tamane, Gaushrara, Bhakunde and Arjam villages of Myagdi and Baglung’s Malika, Panchase and Kharka villages are facing hardship due to lack of a bridge over the river, added Thapa.
