Brick kilns defy local government order, continue operating

Banepa, November 18

Brick kilns based in Bhakundebensi of Namobuddha municipality, Kavrepalanchowk are still operating against local government’s notice.

The municipality issued a notice last week, ordering the closure of all brick kilns in the locality. It said that the kilns were caused an adverse impact on human health.

Landowners who had leased the land for such industries were also asked to terminate the contract.

Cases of respiratory and eye diseases are on the rise in the municipality with the deterioration of air quality caused by air pollutants released by brick kilns. Despite the notice, the kilns continue to produce bricks.

Bhairavkunda Brick Kiln proprietor Kedar Prasad Acharya, however, said brick kilns owners here were not formally informed about the notice. “We are working on our own as we have invested millions of rupees into this business, provided employment to poor people, and it is also the concern of the working class people as well.”

He said he. like other owners of brick kilns, wants the local government to bear in mind this fact and let them continue their business.

Kathmandu, November 16

The federal government says as many as 55 among 753 local governments in the country are yet to introduce their annual budget plan for the current fiscal year 2018/19 though four months have passed since the beginning of the year.

Laws have it that the local units need to table their annual budget at their council meetings by June 24 every year.

However, the 55 local units have failed to abide by the law due to lack of coordination with provincial and federal units, according to Baikuntha Aryal, Secretary of National Natural Resources and Fiscal Commission.

Aryal says the newly formed Commission’s performance has been hindered by the delay in introduction of budget. The Commission is currently holding discussions with federal, provincial and local units to decide how to distribute resources among them.

Meanwhile, Aryal urged all the local units to follow the constitutional provisions.
