Kathmandu, Nov 30
State-Minister for Urban Development Rambir Manandhar has said that the government was effortful to make the homeless people-free city.
At a programme organized at Mhepi in Balaju, Kathmandu today on the occasion of Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary, State-Minister Manandhar shared that the government had accelerated construction of the Manav Sewa Asharam, a community shelter for those rescued from the street. Manandhar said, “It is an important need to follow the guidelines of the Guru Nanak for the development of humanity and human civilization.”
Stating that it was the responsibility of the State to rescue and rehabilitate people rendered homeless, he informed that the ‘Homeless people-free nation’ as envisaged by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli was gaining momentum. The State-Minister also shared that the government had provided a piece of land at Paanchmane at Tinpiple in Tarkeshwor Municipality, Kathmandu for the construction of a shelter for homeless people left stranded in the street.
A team comprising Prime Minister’s spouse Radhika Shakya and State-Minister Manandhar among others recently had made an on-site visit of this place on Sunday.
