Suggestions to shift settlements of five VDCs

The geologists have suggested that settlements of five VDCs in the earthquake-hit Kavre district should be shifted to safer locations.

Based on the geological studies of the VDCs, the experts told the lawmakers of the district, chief district officer and local-level politicians that the settlements should be shifted from the existing locations as disasters loom large in the areas.

Local Development Officer Chiranjibi Timsina said that the experts made such recommendation after the field studies in Boldephediche, Chyamrengbesni, Nagregargache, Pokharinarayastha and Pokharichauri VDCs.

Lawmakers of the concerned constituencies were the coordinator of the study team conducted with participation of the Ministry of Science and Technology and Department of Mines and Geology.

Chief District Officer of Kavre Sudarshan Dhakal said that most of the residents of the five VDCs were at risk of disaster and some people have left the places while some others are shifted to safer locations.

He added that temporary shelters would be managed for the locals and foodstuffs and tarpaulins have been kept in stock to distribute to the needy. RSS
