Until a few years ago, the areas across the Rapti River were considered as the most backward and undeveloped regions in Banke district. However, the area is now getting a facelift thanks to various development works being carried out there of late.
Raptisonari and Narainapur Rural Municipalities in Banke Constituency No. 1 have become more accessible in the last three years due to the work done in the areas of health and education including roads, electricity, bridges, embankments and irrigation.
Federal lawmaker of Constituency No. 1 Maheshwor Gahatraj ‘Athak’ said that the region was gradually turning into an urban area having easy access to several facilities.
He said that since he became a lawmaker, a lot of work has been done in the area, including electrification, Sikta Irrigation Project, construction of roads and bridges.
“After 30 years of efforts, blacktopped roads and electricity have reached the areas of Narainapur and Raptisonari,” he said.
