The cabinet decided to prepare separate directives to address the demands of women combatants and those injured during the conflict period, 19-day movement and Madhes movement.
Similarly, the cabinet also declared bird flu alert in some of VDCs of Sunsari, Ilam and Jhapa districts and instructed the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives to take measures to control further spread of the H1N1 virus.
The meeting also announced a committee to be led of Maoist leader Janardan Sharma, which will include leaders of Nepali Congress and CPN-UML, to find alternative ways to address the war-era land transactions after the cabinet revoked its earlier decision to legalise those transactions.
