Thirty families of the endangered Raji community at Bhajani of Kailali district will get new houses under the Chief Minister Integrated Model Housing Programme.
A team led by Minister for Land Management, Agriculture and Cooperative of Sudurpaschim State Binita Chaudhary recently inspected the construction site. The Ministry endorsed the project in the fiscal year, 2020/21. "For this purpose, the Bhajani Municipality has started the selection process for right families for the project," said the Municipality Mayor Sher Bahadur Chaudhary.
Following the inspection, Minister Chaudhay said impoverished and backward communities and the communities at risk of natural disasters were prioritized for the project.
"The families in problem will be prioritized. We will provide concrete houses for the Raji community," she said. Alongside the project, the government has a plan to establish industries in the State acting on the demand of the local people so as to reduce outflow of local people to India for jobs by creating job opportunities at home, according to her.
Under this project, a Raji family will get a two-room concrete building. Happiness has found its way to the backward community as they are getting new houses. "The new house will replace my old thatched house. Earlier, some families got new houses under the People's Housing Programme. Now Raji families will get new houses and it will get easier for them to make a living when the government creates job opportunities for them," said the community leader Dambar Raji.
