BAJHANG: In the wake of the lockdown enforced across the country to avoid the COVID-19 outbreak, Kedarsyu Rural Municipality in the district has established a food depot to avoid starvation.

The Rural Municipality said it bought the food grains and stored it in the depot for future purposes.

The settlements in the higher belts of Bhamchaur, Bhairabnath, Rayal, and Banj witness food shortage, and the lack of jobs at present would worsen the situation.

Rural Municipality chair Indra Bahadur Bhandari informed that the food storage was for preventing the food shortage in the future. The food grains would be distributed to poor families first. There are nine wards in Kedarsyu.

Earlier, the State government had allocated Rs 2.5 million to each rural municipality so that they could provide foods as a relief to the daily wage workers and indigent families during the lockdown.

The food grain was collected and stored by adding half a million to the amount provided by the State government, according to chair Bhandari.

The Rural Municipality has so far distributed the food grains to 300 households for the first round. The sacks of good grains are stacked in the meeting hall of the Rural Municipality office. There are 300 quintals of rice, 60 quintals of pulse, 115 quintals of salt, and 336 cartons of cooking oil.

Currently, there are 23 persons in two quarantines in the Rural Municipality.
