Dhunche - A huge quantity of potato produce has been stranded on the way to market due to road disruption after landslide.
Farmers belonging to Gatlang of Northern Rasuwa are facing trouble to supply the vegetable item with no smooth traffic.
A total of 300,000 kgs of potato harvested by 284 farmers has been left behind due to landslide-triggered traffic blockage, said Mi Lama of Gatlang.
The landslides that took place in Ramche and Mulkharka area have put the supply of potato produce worth Rs 6.5 million on hold, said farmers.
The aggrieved farmers further said the road obstruction has hit them hard as potato sale is the only source of income to meet daily household expenses and education for children.
