Public hearing held in Bhaktapur

  September 26, 2018

Majority of the earthquake victims in Bhaktapur said that the grant amount of Rs 50,000 received by them as a first instalment of relief has been spent while demolishing the damaged house.

The participants in a program on public hearing at Surya Binayak Municipality-8, Sipadole organized by INSEC expressed their issues.

Shyam Babu Adhikari of Sipadol said that the first instalment of Rs 50,000 is finished only while demolishing the house and managing the debris.

He added” My house was damaged by the earthquake in 2015, however we lived there after a minor renovation. This year the roof started to leak and 40,000 from the first instalment received was finished on demolishing the house and managing the debris. Now how can I make house?”.

Victims who do not have any source of income and do not have house in other places are in deep crisis.

Mishri Nepali of Sipadol is having a similar kind of problem. She do not have any other house and she made one storied house but without passing the map. This has deprived her of getting second instalment.

Speaking at the program, Ram Bahadur Tamang of Ashapuri Sipadoe said that he did not get the second instalment. He added that the technical team has already inspected and process is met but still did not get the instalment.

Majority of the participants complained that the amount they got in the first instalment is finished while demolishing the house.
