Locals staged a demonstration in Chainpur demanding proper evaluation when distributing compensation for the 87 MW Seti-3 hydropower project to be built near Chainpur, Bajhang headquarters. The affected people alleged that the 87-megawatt capacity project to be built by the Chilime Hydropower Company should be determined by taking into consideration the livelihood of the local people during land acquisition.
The demonstrators alleged that the arable land, which is the only basis for the livelihood of the local people, will be destroyed during the construction of the project, and they demand that the compensation should be determined in such a way as to guarantee their livelihood. As the land to be acquired is connected to the headquarters of Chainpur, it was bought and sold three years ago for 36 lakhs per ropani, it is connected to roads and road bridges and irrigation facilities are also available, so the affected people demand to get at least 30 lakhs per ropani.
