Chief of Metropolitan Traffic Police Division Sarvendra Khanal recently inspected the Kathmandu road and asked to clear the obstacles in footpath. Earlier, chief of Metropolitan Traffic Police Division Sarvendra Khanal requested Kathmandu Metropolitan City to fill the potholes of Kathmandu for the safety of the general public and vehicles.
Khanal had drawn the mayor’s attention to the fact that traffic police could not stand at the crossroads due to mud, dust and potholes which were also creating problems for the general public as well as vehicles.
In response Mayor Shakya had said KMC had no plan to fill the potholes until the monsoon season ended as the rain would wash away all efforts at maintenance. According to him, filling potholes during the rainy season was a waste of revenue as the roads couldn’t be fixed due to rainfall. Shakya had tried to assure the participants at the discussion by saying KMC would fill the potholes after monsoon and before Dashain.
