Minister for Home Affairs Bal Krishna Khand today enquired chief district officers (CDOs) of 20 districts to know of the preparedness on part of the concerned authorities to protect vulnerable people from cold wave and snowfall in those places.

Cold wave in Terai and snowfall in mountainous regions are taking toll on the lives and livelihood of many impoverished and vulnerable community people. The government had decided to provide warm clothes and firewood to save the vulnerable from harsh winter, said minister’s press coordinator Madhusudan Bhattarai.

Ringing up the CDOs, Minister Khand instructed them to arrange warm clothes and firewood to the targeted communities. The Minister also enquired CDOs about law and order situation in their respective districts of Manang, Dadeldhura, Gorkha, Taplejung, Bajhang, Solukhumbu, Mugu, Khotang, Okhaldhunga, Sunsari, Udayapur and Panchthar among others, informed Bhattarai.

He also gleaned information on vaccination drive against COVID-19 in their districts, shared Bhattarai.

The Minister also enquired about local government’s response to COVID-19 prevention, control and cure of the infected ones. He also expressed concern over the Nepali returnee migrant workers and possible transmission of COVID-19.
