Surkhet–Five districts of Karnali State - Kalikot, Humla, Dolpa, Mugu and Jumla - are left without telecommunication for the past three days after a telephone tower at Bharta in Kalikot broke down, said the Nepal Telecom, Surkhet.
As a result, the local people and institutions have been affected in many ways. "The service has been discontinued after the solar power supply disrupted due to bad weather conditions. A technical team has been sent off to Kalikot for a repair. The service will resume soon," said Nawaraj Khatiwada, the Nepal Telecom Surkhet's Chief.
