Speaking in today’s National Assembly meeting, they shared that the landslide and flood following rainfall has affected people’s life.

Lawmaker Singh Bahadur Bishwokarma argued that problems have surfaced in movement of vehicles as landslides have taken place and the highway section has caved in due to rainfall for the past few days and the bodies concerned should pay attention as road accidents have been taking place due to this.

Stating that Karnali province has been facing problem of landslide and inundation, lawmaker Nanda Chapai pointed out the need of resolving problem by carrying out onsite study as lower coastal area is at the risk of inundation.

Likewise, Khimlal Devkota opined that outgoing mayor of Pokhara metropolitan city had reduced the minimum distance from the bank of Phewa Lake to 35 meters from 65 meters, adding construction of eight-nine storey building being constructed without taking permission should be stopped in Pokhara.

NA member Dil Kumari Rawal sought reason behind the participation of Army Chief though the government had decided not to be the part of state partnership program (SPP).
