Bidur locals picket Municipality Office over relief distribution list

NUWAKOT: Locals in Bidur Municipality-5 have picketed the Municipal Office claiming that their houses were not included in the list of structures damaged by the earthquake.

The locals claimed that the Office omitted to include 222 damaged houses in list of the quake-damaged structures.

However, the officials at the Municipality claimed that they did not file any applications at the Municipality and failed to submit detailed documents to prove them quake victims. The Office stated that the names would be included in the quake victims' list once they submitted the necessary documents.

Locals in the Municipality staged the protest after they failed to receive relief support provided by the Municipal Office.

The Office has been distributing the relief of Rs 5,000 to those whose houses were completely damaged and Rs 15,000 to construct the temporary structures.
