Organising a news conference in Lalitpur on Wednesday, CG Chairman Binod Kumar Chaudhary said that the houses would be constructed with the next six months and handed over to the victims.
Chaudhary further said that the group has initiated works with a target to construct 9,000 more houses in collaboration with national and foreign donor agencies as well as other organisations.
