Two dozen houses at risk of landslide in Dakshinkali, Kathmandu


KATHMANDU: At least two dozen houses are at high risk of landslides at Dakshinkali Municipality (DM) of Kathmandu.
The houses at Ward numbers 8,9, 4 and 3 in the rural municipality have been placed at high risk of landslides after the mud above the houses and under the houses flowed due to continuous rainfall.
Mohan Basnet, Mayor of Dakshinkali Municipality, said five houses were damaged due to landslides.
The road networks from Chalnakhel to Pakhachowk of ward no 2 were completely disrupted after Bagmati River swept this road section.
The blocked road of this section was temporally opened only for emergency cases, he said.
Three excavators from city level and two excavators from entrepreneurs have been pressed into service to open the blocked road section of all wards of the municipality.
The blocked road of all the wards will be clear within two days, said the municipality.
The blocked road networks from Kathmandu to Hetauda have not yet connected. The landslides at different places in Makwanpur have obstructed all road networks.
The Hetauda-Sinneri –Kathmandu and Hetauds-Fakhel-Humane-Kathamndu road sections of ward no 8 and 9 were disrupted by landslides at different places.
‘We are able to open Kathmandu Hetauda road section within two days if Thaha Municipality of Makwanpur actively work for clear the blocked road of their side,’ he said.
The Dakshinkali Municipality has allocated Rs. 4 million through Risk Management Trust. The allocated budget will be distributed to landslides affected people after working procedure is prepared.
The municipality is waiting for central and province government decision on providing relief to the flood and landslides victims, he said.
