KATHMANDU: Minister for Urban Development, Ram Kumari Jhakri is holding talks with the agitating locals of Bancharedanda on garbage management this morning.
Talks have been scheduled to be held at the Ministry today between the Bancharedanda struggle committee and the ministry on dumping garbage in Bancharedanda of Nuwakot.

The dispute escalated after the locals of Bancharedanda and Sisdol obstructed the trucks carrying garbage in the area.
The agitating locals have blamed the authorities for dumping the garbage without the consent of the locals.
Locals had obstructed the vehicles carrying garbage on Tuesday and Wednesday and the situation had worsened after the police used force.
On behalf of the government, Urban Development Minister Ram Kumari Jhankri, coordinator of the agitating struggle committee Shri Ram Dhungana and ward chairpersons of Nuwakot and Dhading affected by the garbage will participate in tomorrow’s talks.
Earlier, the Ministry of Urban Development had agreed to dump garbage in Bancharedanda on Monday with the heads of Kakani of Nuwakot and Dhunibesi of Dhading.
However, the locals denied the allegations saying that the ward chairperson of the affected area was not included.
