The Kaski district committee of the All Nepal Farmers Association (Revolutionary) has begun commune farming in the district. Such people-oriented program has been initiated in all the 4 electoral areas in around 100 ropanis. 3 among 4 were victorious grounds for CPN-M in the historical CA Poll.
According to the association, it has invested 1 Lakh for the purpose of self-reliance.
60 ropanis of 100 has been cultivated in an agreement with the land-owners and the government owned farming zone, allocated for the construction of regional airport.
“The association will continue this program in government owned farming zone unless the airport construction begins.” says Hari Lamichhane, district chairman of ANFA (R).
