Melamchi, Sept 18: Locals have expressed their wrath over non-operation of bus service along the Manmohan Highway that connects Melamchi and Chautara via Nawalpur fo the Sindhupalchowk district.
People came up with wrath due to sheer negligence to operate bus service on the highway which was constructed couple of years back. The road section stretching 26-km has been linked to Melamchi, Nawalpur and district headquarters Chautara.
Though local folks of 30 VDCs of Sindhupalchowk constituency no 2 and 3 could be directly benefitted from the bus service, it is not likely to come into operation soon due to lack of willingness among authorities and stakeholders.
To the chagrin, the general public here are compelled to travel 65-km spending at least five hours to reach district headquarters because of non-operation of vehicle services on the 26-km shortcut route.
“We are forced to travel through odd routes of other districts to reach to the headquarters of our district for no operation of bus services on the short route”, said Kaman Tamang, a local.
