MUSTANG: Life in Mustang, the district beyond the Himalaya, has been affected with the disruption of transportation services. Traffic from neighbouring district Myagdi to Jomsom area has come to a total halt for 20 days due to landslides at several locations.

People of Mustang who were in Pokhara before the nationwide lockdown against the COVID-19 are now unable to return homes even after the lifting of lockdown.

They arrived here to avoid cold during winter and got stuck due to the imposition of lockdown.

The link road from Galeshwor of Myagdi to Lete of Mustang has been disrupted at multiple locations, said Beni-Jomsom-Korola road project chief Ashok Chief.

As he said, it will take at least a month to restore the damaged sections even if the maintenance works are accelerated right from the moment.

With the closure of transport services, the shortage of petroleum products has surfaced here due to the breaking of supply chain.

The shortage has its impact on the implementations of Kaligandaki Corridor Project and other infrastructure development projects.

House of Representatives (HoR) member from Mustang, Prem Chand Tulachan said he was in touch with the federal government to resume the highway.

The problem is frequent as earth from Tatopani of Myagdi to Lete of Mustang is weak. He highlights the need of carrying out a geological study of the area to seek a long-term solution to the matter.
