Pithoragarh, March 20

Villagers today demanded that a rehabilitation policy should be framed by both India and Nepal for Pancheshwar Dam oustees.

Villagers from Majirkanda, Baltari, Kanari, Githigara, Tarigaon, Taleswar, Amtari, Simu and Takula, near Jhoolaghat town on the border with Nepal have formed a committee, The Pancheswar Bandh Doob Kshetra Prabhavit Sangharsh Samiti at Jhoolaghat and demanded sufficient and proper employment and compensation for the affected persons.

“We have requested parties not to make it a political issue and let the affected villagers struggle for their demands,” said Chandra Shekher Bhatt, president of the samiti.
