Farm road to alleviate wildlife fears

A 350-km farm-road was inaugurated around twoweeks back from Nobgang to Thruelum . The estimated budget for the farm road is Nu 0.2 mn and is expected to benefit 38 households. “Villagers used to walk one to two hours to reach the nearest road point which is usually covered by thick forest during monsoon and there used to be threats from wild life,” said the Gewog Administration Officer (GAO), Tshewang Dorji.
