  1. The same is true with district Kargil as well. Firstly we have not left any space on the sides of roads especially NH1. Secondly, dumping wastes, keeping water tanks, logs, construction materials and parking of vehicles has resulted in many bottlenecks in many places particularly Andoo, TV station, Bemathang etc.
    It is high time that MC Kargil and other stakeholders should take concrete steps to clear the roads and prevent from any future mishap and inconvenience.
