Minister for Land Management, Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation Padhma Kumari Aryal has said that Guthi Bill will be reintroduced to preserve the Guthi land.
At a meeting of the National Concerns and Coordination Committee of the National Assembly on Sunday, Minister Aryal said that the government was preparing to reintroduce the Guthi Bill though it was suspended in the past adding that the Bill was brought to preserve the Guthi land.
Since Guthi is a unique issue, she said it should be managed in a distinct way adding that there is no provision for the use of Guthi land through the direct intervention of the government unlike government and public lands.
We are working for the protection and proper use of Guthi land as per its purpose since its encroachment and efforts to bring under the individuals’ ownerships are ongoing, she added.
