Flooded Ranjor River in Manthali destroys 100 ropanis of paddy field
Sep 20, 2017-A flood at Ranjor River in Manthali Municipality-1, Ramechhap that occurred on Tuesday night has destroyed over 100 ropanis of paddy field.
The mud sediment of the flood submerged the cultivated land at Chukaha section of Bhaiseshwor after entering the area from the northern side, according one local Sitaram Karki.
The Manthali Municipality had constructed a canal to control the flow of Ranjor River prior to the monsoon river. However, the river overflowed through the irrigation channel, that the farmers have dug along the canal, and entered the paddy fields.
As a result, the flood deposits blocked the Tamakoshi River causing inundation up to the nearby Airport and setting panic among the locals.
Meanwhile, the bigger Tamakoshi River cut through the mud-sediment from Ranjor River after which the water at inundated areas have receded.
