Nepalgunj, Oct 3 : Nepalgunj Sub Metropolitan City has brought into operation seven buses along various routes in the sub metropolis. The buses are plying along Nepalgunj-Kohalpur route, said Sharad Poudel, information officer at the sub metropolis.
The total 25 female conductors have been employed on the buses after providing them free training, said the sub metropolis mayor Dr Dhawal Shamsher Rana. “Our sisters can deliver if given the responsibility. We have given this responsibility to them and we believe they will deliver,” he said. The sub metropolis has also a plan to appoint female drivers on the buses. Although the sub metropolis purchased the buses four months ago, their operation delayed due to various reasons, said Poudel. The seven buses were bought for over Rs 34 million.
