UDAYAPUR, May 6: Until a few years ago, protests used to be city-centric in Nepal. However, that has changed in the recent years. These days, people living in cities seem less bothered by strikes, rallies and sit-ins. But it's the people living in remote areas who suffer the most by the protests staged by various groups.
KHOTANG, April 12: The four-member family of Chetra Bahadur Karki of Halesi Tuwachung Municipality-1 in Khotang district spent nearly three years inside a tarpaulin tent in hope that the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) would aid them to rebuilt their quake-ravaged house.
KATHMANDU, Feb 6: The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) has said that it will provide the total housing reconstruction grant of Rs 300,000 to earthquake victims whose houses were partially damaged by last year's earthquakes but are willing to go for full reconstruction rather than just repairs.
