JAJARKOT: Government officials who have been monitoring the overall development works and law and order in the district have witnessed demands from the general public. The government monitors from local level chiefs to Chief District Officer said that they were surprised to see the nature of demands from the public in the district.
At a discussion held at Thala Bazar of Chhedagad municipality in Jajarkot-West, the locals have demanded the establishment of a police post, routine monitoring of the market, prevention of illegal export and regular construction of roads.
The general public also drew attention of the public authorities towards building a bridge over Mork rivulet which has been in a limbo for over three years. They also called for the expansion of telephone services to reach the entire population in the district.
The Chhedagad mayor expressed concern that the extortion drive of the Netra Bikram Chand group has created panic amongst the public in absence of a police post. “They have collected donations from every plan, how can we work in this situation,” he stated.
In response, CDO Chetraj Baral assured the mayor that he would take the initiative to set up a police post.
The monitoring committee comprises CDO Baral, Deputy Superintendent of Police Kishor Shrestha, Armed Police DSP Achyut Majgaiya, National Investigation Department’s DSP Om Bahadur Khadka and Assistant Chief District Officer, \ among others.
