Long route buses barred from circumnavigate Ring Road
Long route passenger buses will not be allowed to circumnavigate the Ring Road to collect and drop passengers and will have to use the shortest Kalanki-New Bus Park route while leaving and entering Kathmandu Valley from Sunday.
The decision to that regard was taken after a meeting of the Director General of Department of Transport Management Rup Narayan Bhattarai, Chief of Metropolitan Traffic Police Mingmar Lama and other authorities concerned on July 13.
"The directives have come into effect to avert traffic jam as well as to ease traffic management," said DoTM Spokesperson Dr Tokraj Pandey.
He informed that those finding violating the directives will be fined up to Rs 5,000 as per the Vehicle and Transportation Management Act 1992.
According to Pandey, the decision would be effective as the directives will be implemented with the consensus among the traffic entrepreneurs.
The vehicles will not be allowed to park at Kalanki but allowed to pick up passengers from Kalanki. With this, buses exiting from Kathmandu willl have to take left from New Bus Park and exit through Kalanki and Nagdhunga while those entering Kathmandu will also have to take left from Kalanki and reach New Bus Park.
Meanwhile, Metropolitan Traffic Management Division has also said that discussions would be held among the newly-elected mayors and office-bearers of local levels adjoining the Ring Road for an alternative management of bus parks.

Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.
