Home Minister Bal Krishna Khand today inspected the monsoon-induced floods areas in Belaka Municipality-8, Udayapur district.

After the on-site visit, Minister Khand said the government would implement new plans and programme to curb land erosion at Belaka Municipality.

Belaka Municipality Mayor Durga Kumar Thapa and Udayapur’s Chief District Officer Tulsiram Sedhai briefed the Khand that land erosion was a recurring problem facing the locals at Belaka Municipality and over 2,000 households residing along some 5-kilometres stretch in the Municipality were at risk of displacement due to erosion.

Similarly, Subash Bohara, Chief of the District Police Office, Udayapur said that the locals were hopeful that Minister Khand’s visit would help address their issues relating to land sweeping at the earliest.

Meanwhile, Minister Khand also inspected monsoon-induced disaster-hit places in Sindhupalchowk and Dhanusha district today itself.

The Minister visited Helambu area, the source of Melamchi River, Chataraghat in Udayapur side, and areas swept away by flood in Kamala River.

According to Minister Khand, the government was mulling about constructing strong infrastructure in Helambu Areas since its geographical terrain was very weak.

He assured that all the reconstruction works will be accelerated in the wake of massive floods ravaging Melamchi Bazar area in Sindhupalchowk this monsoon.

Furthermore, he pledged to formulate appropriate plans to curb land erosion in other disaster-hit districts he visited today such as Dhanusha and Udayapur.
