Quake victims still in problem: NHRC
Kathmandu, June 19
The National Human Rights Commission has expressed concern over the failure to ensure basic human rights to earthquake survivors even one year after the disaster.
A high-level team under the leadership of NHRC member Govinda Poudyal recently carried out monitoring of Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot and Rasuwa district and found that even basic human rights of the quake survivors were at risk.
Issuing a press release here today, the NHRC said that survivors in all the quake-affected districts have been facing problems while some victim families in Gorkha have not received the Rs 15,000 provided by the government.
The NHRC also requested to coordinate among bodies concerned to provide grant assistance in an easy and smooth manner, to carry out a review of those left out in course of collecting data of quake victims, to make arrangement of local bodies elections and to ensure resources to offices established at the local level to make the activities of National Reconstruction Authority effective, states the press release issued by NHRC Secretary Bed Bhattarai.
