KATHMANDU: Nepal Scouts volunteers would be joining hands with the Traffic Police in managing the traffic in the Kathmandu Valley.

The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division (MTPD) said the scout students will be mobilized at crowded places in Kathmandu for facilitating the smooth operation of vehicular traffic.

Addressing the inauguration program here today, Nepal Scouts Chief Commissioner Lok Bahadur Amgain shared that more than 130 scout volunteers would be mobilized at 15 various places in Kathmandu in that connection.

“We are the volunteers in uniform. Nepal Scouts has carried out public awareness-raising programs in many districts both before and after the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said adding that Nepal Scouts was happy to collaborate with the Traffic Police and provide service in the Kathmandu Valley as well.

He expressed the commitment that Nepal Scouts would not shy away from spreading the message to the general public and the transport workers by making the maximum use of the skills they have learned.

MTPD Chief Janak Bhattarai said the scout volunteers would help facilitate the smooth management of traffic at crowded places.

He added that the pedestrians and the citizens will get relief while crossing the road with the cooperation of the scouts volunteers.

Bhattarai further said the volunteers would be mobilized at crowded places inside the Ring Road. The Traffic Police had been mobilizing students of various schools and people representing different organizations as volunteers to manage the road traffic before this also.

This initiative of mobilizing students and volunteers was found effective in raising traffic awareness but was halted after some time. This time also, the campaign of mobilizing volunteers has begun from today and it will run for a week.
