Tulsipur, August 1
As many as 59 border pillars have been reconstructed along Nepal-India border line in Dang district.
A joint team of officials from both the countries had initiated the rebuild of border pillars since three years back.
The reconstruction bid was initiated when the border pillars made up of bricks and cement started falling apart.
Chief District Officer of Dang, Gajendra Bahadur Shrestha shared the information that the broken border pillars were rebuilt on consensus of Nepal and India
“With this, only five border pillars remain to be reconstructed in the area”, he said, adding that Nepal reconstructed 14 main and 21 auxiliary border pillars.
“Nepal needs to erect other four main and one auxiliary border pillars”, said Armed Police Force official Tulsi Ram Dahal.
There are 37 main and 77 auxiliary border pillars along the 83-km Nepal-India area in Dang alone.
