As part of its ongoing drive to widen valley streets, Metropolitan Traffic Police Division (MTPD) has expanded major sections of three busy roads under PM Dr Baburam Bhattarai’s instructions to ease traffic jams in the capital.
The impact of the much-talked-about Hello Sarkar public complaints hotline is being seen in one instance after another. Some 41 bus passengers in Itahari were able to recover Rs 6,150 fleeced from them by the bus owners on Saturday thanks to timely intervention by the Hello Sarkar team. The Hello Sarkar control room has been in operation following its inauguration by the prime minister on Thursday. The control room has been taking non-stop phone calls and there is a flood of complaints by email, fax and SMS also.
