The beneficiaries of the district are facing difficulties after they could not get social security allowances for this month. The government was supposed to distribute the allowance 15 days before the commencement of Dashain festival however due to the late disbursement of budget by the District Development Committee; the beneficiaries are facing difficulties before the festival.

Single women, senior citizens, person with disability and Dalit community did not get any allowances until now. This is going to affect their festival.

Beneficiaries from 54 VDcs of the district and two municipalities did not get social security allowances. Suresh Kumar Dhungel, VDC secretary said that the beneficiaries are facing difficulties because of not getting any allowances in the peak of the festive season.

The distribution of allowance has been hampered because District Development Committee did not get disbursement from Ministry of finance. According to account officer Santosh Shrestha of District Development Committee, the distribution of allowances will resume soon.  Chairman, Shyam Kumar Khadka of senior citizen, Bhojpur said that concerned body must draw their attention in this serious issue.
