BHAJANI, Oct 24: Nepali Congress senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel has called for providing relief to the flood-affected people at the earliest.
At a program organized in Tikapur of Kailali district today, he said arrangements should be made immediately for providing relief in the flood-hit areas, and also relief packages for the long-term should be announced.
"Much damage has been caused by flooding in the eastern region of Kailali, which I could observe during my on-site visit to the areas there. I call upon the government to provide immediate relief for now and for long-term planned relief as well," senior leader Poudel said.
Stating that Tikapur was at high risk of floods due to the Karnali and Mohana rivers, he discussed the matter with the government for addressing this problem in the long term. Senior leader Poudel suggested forming an experts' team to carry out a study in this connection to deal with the risk through modern engineering design.
The NC senior leader has conducted an on-site inspection of the damage caused by the flooding that occurred in various places of Kailali since October 18.
