Flash flood sweeps away under construction bridge in Khotang
A flash flood in the Sapsu River has swept away an under construction bridge connecting Rajapani area and Batase of Khotang.
The flooding on Wednesday swept away the bridge due to negligence on part of the contractor company which failed to complete its task despite extension of the deadline.
The bridge should have been completed by the first week of May, but due to the flooding it is unlikely to meet the extended deadline as well. The construction of the bridge started two years ago under an agreement of a total investment of Rs 20 million.
Rajapani area's local Punya Regmi blamed the contractor company for the delay in construction of the bridge. He accused the company of resuming work every year after the start of the monsoon season. RSS

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.
