The initiative, made possible with the assistance of the ward office, has brought tangible improvements to the quality of life in these remote communities.
Rupman Shrestha, another resident, shared the positive impact of electricity on information access. With the advent of power supply, the villagers now enjoy internet services, television, and other means of communication. This has enabled them to stay informed about both national and international news, connecting these remote areas to the broader world.
Bach Kumar Rai, the Ward Chairman of Ramprasad Rai Rural Municipality-8, reflected on the challenges faced in electrifying the geographically isolated villages. He acknowledged the prolonged efforts invested in making this dream a reality and emphasized the severe struggles faced by the locals due to the lack of power supply.
Rai proudly announced the successful electrification of Khoksing and Baurang villages, assuring that the entire ward would be electrified by the coming year.
