 The municipality had bought 70 sacks of rice from the Nepal Food Corporation. These were distributed to the locals of ward no 4. According to Mekh Raj Ojha, Chief of Nepal Food Corporation, Bajura, some of the sacks may have been destroyed since they had sold the remaining rice of last year.

The rice was distributed after the permission of the Mayor of Badimalika Municipality. He says he was unaware of the fact that the rice was decayed. He has informed of returning the rice.

Chief District Officer Ganga Prasad Neupane also informed of being unaware and has instructed of returning the rice.
