Landslide, flood victims still waiting for house reconstruction ahead of another monsoon


BAGLUNG:- The flood and landslide victims who lost their home due to the disasters are still waiting for reconstruction in the district. Though there are three tiers of the government in the country, the victims are not addressed by any one even after a year.
The victims in all 10 local levels in the district have been living under the makeshift houses and tents in the winter and spring season. Now they are worried of the approaching monsoon season.
Ishwar Poudel, a victim of Jaimini Municipality-1 complained that eight houses were damaged in the landslides but no single house is reconstructed so far.
According to the district disaster management committee report, a total of 632 houses were damaged in the floods and landslides in the district last year.
Of the total displaced, 21 households don’t have their own land plot to reconstruct the house. However, 52 houses could be fit for living only after retrofitting.
Although the federal government has announced Baglung, Myagdi and Sindhupalchok districts as the disaster-hit districts, no initiations have been taken to reconstruct the houses of the flood and landslide victims in the district so far.
Dhorpatan Municipality mayor Devkumar Nepali shared that they were waiting for reconstruction bids from the concerned sides and federal government. The municipality has made makeshift houses from the relief funds.
