Pvt sector can distribute relief: Chief Secy Paudyal

- POST REPORT, Kathmandu

May 2, 2015-

Government Chief Secretary Leela Mani Paudyal has made it clear that the government has not barred the private sector from distributing relief packages to the earthquake victims.

Speaking at a press conference in the Capital on Saturday, Paudyal said the individual volunteers were directed to coordinate with Chief District Officers in order to avoid possibilities of disparity in relief distribution. He said the government teams led by joint-secretaries had already reached the 15 hardest-hit constituencies. “We have assigned 55 personnel in 15 areas,” he said.

However, Paudyal refuted media reports that there had been a haggle among government entities over leadership to distribute relief. “The media reports are fabricated and without base,” said the top bureaucrat, adding there are enough food stuff, but not enough tents for distribution to the earthquake victims.

People willing to contribute to the relief package can provide to the Nepal Food Corporation, he said. (PR)
