Bajhang DDC office stinks Print E-mail

Bajhang: Most of the houses in the district have toilets and drinking water facilities, but the irony is that Bajhang District Development Committee, the office that regulates these programmes, is devoid of these facilities, thanks to the negligence of DDC officials and district-level political leaders.

Two toilets of the DDC built at the time of construction of the office building have been full of waste. Anyone, who reaches the office, covers his nose to get rid of the reek from the toilets. The toilets are in this state for the past 10 years. Staffers say this is the result of indifference on the part of high officials and political leaders. With the toilets stinking to high heavens, DDC staffers have been using the Communication Centre’s toilet, whereas service seekers have no way but to address the nature’s call in the open.
Man Bahadur Bohara of Rilu VDC, who had come to the office seeking service was in for surprise when he saw the toilets and drinking water problem at the DDC office. He said, “Our villages are neat and tidy, but I was taken aback to see the DDC office.” On his part, Local Development Officer Yubraj Kattel said the DDC will make the old toilets usable.” “Staffers are using the toilet of the communication centre, but service seekers are really suffering.”
DDC’s guesthouse also lacks toilets and drinking water. Other staffers complain that cleaners’ negligence is to blame for this.
