Bajura disaster victims living under food scarcity


BAJURA: Locals of northern parts of the district are undergoing through food scarcity since the floods and landslides displaced them in mid-June this year.

“As many as 600 families are living under food scarcity,” said Gangalal Rokaya, a displaced resident of Kolti village said, “Everything that we had was swept away by landslides. We are facing food scarcity.”

Rokaya is currently living at a cowshed of his neighbour.

Kolti Branch of Nepal Food Corporation (NFC) does not have any rice for a month.

The residents were compelled buy rice at more than Rs 90 per kg from the market. Earlier the NFC was providing a kilo of rice at Rs 45.

“We have been informing higher authorities about the food scarcity but we are not receiving the food items,” Ramesh Bahadur Singh, Chief of NFC said, “There have been a majority of the displaced who are still living under food scarcity.”

According to the displaced residents, Home Minister Bamdev Gautam had visited the disaster-hit site after the floods and landslides.

But his visit meant nothing for the locals since the government turned deaf ears toward their demands, locals complain.

Blockage in Sanphe-Martadi road section has further intensified the crisis as it has been difficult to bring rice in Kolti and surrounding areas from other places.

Also, Martadi-Kolti road section has been blocked.
