On Tuesday, the households of the Dhankuta road section picketed Dharan Sub-Metropolitan office saying their houses will be destroyed while expanding the road.
The situation in the office premises was tense due to the verbal dispute between Acting Mayor Manju Bhandari Subedi and Personal Secretary Sadesh Chapagain. The residents of Dhankuta Road also reached the sub-metropolis on Monday demanding that 72 feet should be the criteria.
The situation was tensed after the picketing program in the sub-metropolitan office. The members of the struggle committee also chanted slogans while picketing. The households of the Dharan-Dhankuta Road section are in protest after the government named the highway as Madan Bhandari sub highway and made criteria of 140 ft.
