Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Renu Kumari Yadav said the contract would be terminated if the Kamalbinayak-Nagarkot road section is not completed within two months.

In a discussion between Minster Yadav and Bagmati Province Minister for Infrastructure Development Krishna Lal Bhadel on the status of road construction, and an understanding was reached to terminate the contract if the road construction works are not completed within a couple of months.

Former general secretary of Federation of Contractors' Association of Nepal Ramsharan Deuja had coordinated the meeting between the teams on Wednesday. The meeting took place to talk about the progress on the road construction and discussed to direct contractor Sailung Construction to complete road construction without any delay.

The contract to this end was entered and construction works began in the fiscal year 2013/14 but its deadline was extended several times. In response to the slow progress despite extension time for several times, locals and hotel entrepreneurs have formed a struggle committee demanding timely completion of construction works.

Minster Bhadel briefed federal Minister Yadav about road construction status and public wrath, and also urged her to take prompt action to expedite road construction, shared mediator Deuja.

On the occasion,  Ministry of Physical Transport and Infrastructure secretary, Rabindra Nath Shrestha commented that the quality has not been maintained well in the construction works and double code blacktopping has yet to be done.

The key responsible actors also discussed to allocate necessary budget from the federal ministry to enable the contractors to complete the construction within two months. Minster Yadav positively responded to the discussion outcome and the need of budgetary allocation, Deuja informed.
