Newly elected Constituent Assembly member from the CPN-UML, Rabin Koirala, has said that the problem of elephant terror in Jhapa district would be solved after holding talks with the Bengal government of India.
Speaking at a program in Kakarbhitta, Jhapa on Saturday, CA member Koirala said attention of Bengal chief minister would be drawn to minimize the elephant menace. A taskforce would be formed to this regard very soon, he assured people, according to RSS.
Similarly, he said a modern fence would be created with the support of the World Bank to block elephants from entering the district from this February onward.
"I'll take initiatives to provide relief to the secondary schools, and promote the roadway from Kakarbhitta to Antudanda of Ilam as a tourist and organic (products) route," he committed.
The people in Jhapa district bordering India always face the problem of elephant terror. Dozens of people are killed and massive properties are destroyed by the migrant elephants every year.
