59 border pillars reconstructed


TULSIPUR, Aug 1: As many as 59 border pillars have been reconstructed along Nepal-India boundary in Dang.

A joint team of Nepal and India 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 between 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 SP at Seema Surakshya Bal Armed Police Force Tulsi Ram Dahal.

There are 37 main and 77 auxiliary border pillars along the 83-km Nepal-India area in Dang alone.
