July 9, Biratnagar. Born 39 years ago in Faktanglung village panchayat of Taplejung district, Rajan Limbu joined the Singapore Gurkha Contingent (Singapore Police) at the age of 18. Realizing the importance of money from the misery of the remote mountains, he had built a house in Kathmandu by the time he got his pension in 15 years.
Shortly after retiring, he became active in raising income sources in Kathmandu. He had planned to do politics in the country and had captured the CPN (Maoist Center) through Singapore.
He has been living in Taplejung for most of the year since 2075 BS.
“Our municipality is very remote, the people are suffering a lot,” said Chairman Limbu. According to him, it takes one day on foot to reach Faktanglung from the district headquarters Phungling. The last road built has reduced that distance to 6 hours. The gravel road has reached Taplithok of Faktanglung.
Faktanglung village municipality is formed by merging the northeastern VDCs of Taplejung – Faktanglung, Olangchungola, Khejanim, Lingkhim, Ikhabu, Tapethok and Lelep.
“It is difficult for the people of the upper part of the municipality to make a living,” said Chairman Limbu. The people of Olangchunggola depend on the Chinese reu market.
Demand with state and federal government
Palika Chairman Limbu has made an action plan to seek assistance from the state and federal government for a big plan by spending the entire internal budget on increasing agricultural yield and educational reform.
He has decided from the first executive meeting to teach English in grades 1-5 of 9 out of 40 schools in the municipality and in class 1 of 31 basic schools from this academic session.
“English education is not necessary to stop those who move to the district headquarters or Madhes to teach their children in the village,” says Chairman Limbu.
The main products of Faktanglung, which borders China, are maize, millet, potatoes, cardamom and herbs. According to Palika Chairman Limbu, cardamom cultivation has increased now, but farmers are upset when the price goes down while selling it.
‘In the geographically remote northern part of our municipality, the telephone does not pick up the tower. Internal income is low, ‘says Limbu,’ now we are working on a plan to increase agricultural production. ‘
He said that he has high expectations from the states and the federation for roads, bridges, hospitals, tourism and communication related infrastructure and plans have been made accordingly.
A bridge is needed on Tamor river as soon as possible to connect wards 4 and 5. Baileybridge can be built there immediately ‘, says Chairman Limbu,’ We have requested the state government for Baileybridge, hospital, telephone tower and Kanchenjunga Tourism Development Center. ‘
