Fire victims cry for food

Rautahat, October 18:

The victims of a fire in Bishrampur VDC-8 of Rautahat have been facing food shortage with neither the government nor any donors aiding them.

Fifty-one houses were in Baleri Khor Tole of the VDC yesterday. The victims say they have not received any relief and have been passing sleepless nights under the open sky.

"The government and donor agencies have provided adequate relief to the Saptakoshi flood victims, but we have not got even a single grain," lamented a victim, Netralal Ale.

Another victim Lok Bahadur Moktan said they have been passing the nights with empty belly after the fire engulfed his house. No less pain other victims have. "What to eat and where shall we live now?" questions Jogo Singh Gole.
