Bajura–Telephone service has come to a halt for past a week following glitches in towers at Badimalika in the district, affecting the subscribers. The local people have vented their ire against the failure of the Nepal Telecom to fix the problems in the towers.
When asked, Bal Bahadur Thapa, ward chair of Badimalika municipality-5, said local Managad micro hydropower has been providing power to the repeater tower. But in course of supplying power to the tower, there were problems witnessed in the turbine of the power house of the hydropower.
"So the hydropower discontinued power supply to the repeater tower, affecting telephone service. The problem will be resolved soon," he said.
