One such site where reconstruction has resumed is road connecting Dumre-Chakaldi-Kusumkhola-Budhakholsi in Palpa district. The foundation stone of this all important 14-kilometer road was laid in mid-February.
The Rayamajhi-PTR Adhikari JV is constructing the road at the cost of Rs. 159.2 million, including the VAT.
