Hotels in the vicinity of Manakamana Temple in Gorkha has been asked to stop using child labour. During a monitoring, some hotels and eateries in the area were found employing underage workers.

Similarly, some hotels and groceries had the date-expired products in the sale outlets, according to Shahid Lakhan rural municipality's vice-chairman Indira Tiwari, who is the coordinator of a market monitoring team of the local government.

The local government here has expedited the market monitoring since Friday, targeting the festival season. Market irregularities including food adulteration and the supplies of date-expired products are potentially high during the festivals. Hotels and shops inside the rural municipality are being monitored bearing in mind the concern for public health.

The monitoring was particularly centered on wards no 2 and 3, it is said. Most outlets were found not abiding by market norms and values. They don’t have a price list, are not registered in the local government, and are supplying date-expired cold drinks and beverages.
