Locals in Phidim of Panchthar district have donated a total of 50 ropani of land for the construction of stadium free of cost. A total of 10 locals donated such area of land for the same.
The stadium would be built at Sarseula of Phidim Municipality-5 in the district.
The donors contributed the land worth more than Rs five million to Phidim municipality, according to the municipality.
Normally, around 9-19 hectare of land is required for the construction of standard stadium.
Ramchandra Nepal granted 19 ropani and 9 aana of land while Birendra Kumar Lawati three ropani and nine aana.
Similarly, Tularam Tamang donated three ropani and eight aana, Sitadevi Nepal two ropani and eight aana, Rohit Prasad Luitel two ropani and Kamala Nepal eight aana of land.
Phidim Municipality is being developed to be a model city and it lacked a standard stadium in lack of resources.
The locals here are confident that the concerned local authority would expedite the process for the construction of stadium once all the donated land comes into the registration of Phidim municipality, shared New Model Town Project’s Phidim Office Chief, Bishwaram Prajapati.
