KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar has expressed commitment to remove the fake landless squatters, who have been residing at different river banks in the Kathmandu Valley by encroaching it.
Home Minister Gachchhadar asked how the people living by constructing RCC buildings in the name of landless squatters by encroaching public land, can be landless squatters.
At a discussion programme organised by the High Level Bagmati Civilization Integrated Development Committee here today, he further said he had requested top leaders of the big three parties frequently to support the removal of fake landless squatters from the places, but he did not get the support he sought.
Home Minister Gachchhadar said he will remove the fake landless squatters at any expense, and warned he will rather settle other people in Tundikhel, if they did not support him for the same.
He said there should be no politics in development and called on all to work by rising above party lines.
The home minister also called on the top leaders of the big three parties to be serious for peace and constitution.
Similarly, Minister for Physical Planning and Works Hyridayesh Tripathi said that the government was committed to conserve the river banks in the Kathmandu Valley.
Chairman of the Committee Mahesh Basnet said there was a need of removing those living at the banks of Bagmati River in the name of landless squatters.
