Victims close road in protest
Aug 19, 2014-
The Sunkoshi landslide victims have obstructed an attempt to open Araniko Highway on Tuesday accusing the government of prioritising opening the highway instead of guaranteeing proper relief and compensation to the victims.
The attempt was made to open the highway, closed since past the 18 days, using dozers and excavators at the initiative of Department of Roads and private business organisations.
Meanwhile, the victims have formed a struggle committee and submitted a memorandum including various demands to Chief District Officer Gopal Prasad Parajuli.
