Absence of employees hits Panchthar service seekers

PANCHTHAR: Absence of employees  at the Area Livestock Office, Yasok in Panchthar district has hit the service seekers hard for the past four months.

Though there has been the posting of three employees including an officer, the whole office now is relying on an office assistant. With this, the locals have complained of not getting service from the office.

They have been deprived of receiving various services including artificial breeding, immunisation to cattle and recommendations from the office for other services, said Khem Niraula, a local farmer.

However, the District Livestock Office justified that they could not depute employees in the Service Centre because of inadequate human resources.
