Technicians halt reconstruction works

Mar 18, 2019-

RAMECHHAP: Technicians deployed for the reconstruction of houses in earthquake-affected Ramechhap district have halted their works since Sunday, demanding the authorities to provide them with additional allowances. The Reconstruction Technicians Network, a forum of technicians mobilised for reconstruction, submitted a charter of demands to Chief District Officer Krishna Prasad Sharma on Sunday and urged him to take initiatives to address their demands. The technicians have demanded the authorities for an additional allowance and for transportation, communication and life insurance facilities. The government provided such facilities earlier, but has discontinued them since the beginning of the current fiscal year. The network has warned to intensify its agitation from Monday if their demands are not met. (PR)
