KMC removes hoarding boardsKathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) on Saturday removed hoarding boards along the routes that the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to use during his two-day visit starting Sunday.
The areas where the hoarding boards were removed include Tirbhuvan International Airport to Hyatt Regency, Boudha and to Soaltee Crown Plaza. The routes linking the Hyatt Regency to Maharajgung as well as Soaltee Crown Plaza to the President’s Office have also been cleaned.
KMC chief Dhana Bahadur Shrestha said they have deployed workers to remove unnecessary hoarding boards along the possible routes
that the Indian premier is likely to use.
Likewise, Shrestha also said that these boards were removed to minimise visual pollution. KMC officials said they pulled down ugly boards as per the Supreme Court’s decision in 2013.
Similarly, the KMC has installed two welcome gates—one at the airport and another outside the Constituent Assembly (CA) building in New Baneshwor—to greet Modi. The metropolis has deployed its entire workforce to clean the major streets of Kathmandu as directed by the government.
