Freed Haliyas rehabilitated

KANCHANPUR: Thirty-five freed Haliya families have been rehabilitated in Bagfata of Bhimdutta municipality-19. The Haliya system is a form of bonded labour practiced in various parts of the western region of the country, which is now been abolished.
The Land Reforms Office provided every family categorized under A group nine dhur of house-plot and Rs. 225,000 in cash to build a house. Accordingly, the families are now busy constructing houses. “We had never dreamed of a house of our own, as we lived on the roadside under temporary sheds,” Manju Damai said while urging the government to now provide them with a source of income.
Likewise, Suresh Nagari, who had been living near the community forest is happy to get a house of his own. However, some families have not been able to build the house due to financial constraints. The cash provided by the government is not sufficient to build a house, Mohan Damai said.
The freed and now rehabilitated Haliya families have also demanded educational support for their children and employment, along with electricity and drinking water facilities.
