Salyan villagers depend on non-iodised salt
Apr 14, 2018-
People living in remote parts of Bangad Kupinde Municipality-11 in Salyan district are consuming non-iodised salt due to lack of awareness.
Villagers said they use non-iodised salt because they are much cheaper. A kilogram of non-iodised salt can be bought for Rs 15, half the price of iodised salt of the same quantity.
Pashupati Pun of Thapachaur in Bangad Kupinde-11 said they have to walk at least five hours to reach Dhorpipal to buy salt. There is no depot of Salt Trading Corporation in the area. (PR)
