Seized land yet to be returned

GANESH CHAUDHARY TIKAPUR, Aug 20 – Supporters of the UCPN (Maoist) are yet to return to the rightful owners the land and houses they seized in Kailali district during the decade-long insurgency, despite the Maoist leadership’s oft-repeated commitment to the handover of the captured assets. Statistics of the District Administration Office, Kailali, show that Maoist activists captured land and houses of 430 individuals in the district during the insurgency.

Poor people and families of Maoist fighters killed during the insurgency have been making use of the assets.

The rightful owners say they have not been able to get back their land and houses because of district-level Maoist leaders.An activists of the UCPN (Maoist) claims cadres are not defying the leadership’s directives. “Poor families and kin of martyrs have been using the land and houses. The party leadership must offer the present occupants an alternative.”
