Baglung, Oct. 11 -- Galkot Municipality of Baglung had enlisted Malma-Righa link road as its pride project in its annual budget last fiscal year. The provincial government and the municipality had allocated Rs 5 million each to upgrade the 21km-long road that links Righa with Malma.

The road's upgradation work was divided into three parts, with one part completing upgradation last year.

But this year, the municipality has not allocated any budget to complete the upgradation work, although there were plans to extend the upgradation work of the road from Righa to Pandavkhani and Ranasinkiteni.

Locals have expressed their dissatisfaction on the municipality's failure to prioritise its pride project, which stands to benefit the locals.
