Bisuni Musahar said he borrowed the sum from Devendra Chaurasia at a high interest rate. He said that now as the village returns to normalcy, he was worried about re-paying the sum and the interest.
The Head of the Government was served millet roti, fish pickle, home-grown vegetables and Mithila's famous delicacy bharua.
A toilet was also built outside the Musahar family's house on the eve of the Prime Minister's visit. The family has become the first in the impoverished dalit settlement to have a toilet near its home.
Thanking the Musahar family for hosting him and his entourage, PM Bhattarai said the government is doing its utmost to develop each and every part of the country. He also called on the public to pile pressure on opposition parties to allow the government to bring this fiscal's budget.
