Bhojpur, Oct 31 : The 15-bed Dingla Hospital based in Shadananda municipality-7, Gadhigaun is lying dysfunctional.
The hospital is turning to a sorry state of affairs owing to sheer ignorance on part of Shadananda municipality which was mandated with entire responsibility for operation and preservation of the hospital, said locals. It may be noted that the hospital was built by Mahadev Khimti Pokhare Kalika Construction Service JV Kathmandu at the cost of Rs 24.51 million. The Indian government had granted the assistance for the construction of hospital building.
In lack of conservation measures, the eastern pillar of the hospital building gate and the outer wall in the southern part are falling apart. Municipality Mayor Birbal Rai pledged to resume the hospital in line with the Nepal government policy to operate one hospital in each local level. ---
