Kalikot, Dec. 13: The number of people going to India for employment and trade has increased significantly after the winter began.

The traders especially from the southern belt of the district as Dhaulagoha, Khin, Thirpu, Nanikot, and Ramnakot VDCs are visiting Jammu Kashmir and other places of India for bringing warm clothes and selling at local market.

Similarly, hundreds of people are going to India on a daily basis from these villages for employment after celebrating festivals and harvesting winter crops at home.

A local from Dhaulagoha, Bal Rokaya, said thousand of people had come home to cast vote in the Constituent Assembly election. But, it caused huge loss to them, he said, adding that each person lost at least Rs 100,000 to Rs 200,000. According to him, some of his friends returned India immediately after Dashain and Tihar festivals to keep on employment.

It is said Ukhadi village of Khin VDC is almost deserted in the district, as most of men folks left there for job in India. Even the children are forced to go follow them to help earn a living. Few youths left in the village have migrated to lower places and Tarai region for goat keeping, according to a local Mim Dhami.

In this connection, a social activist and political analyst in the district, Kamal Chhetri, said although the second Constituent Assembly was said to be a historic event to create job within district and the country, people in the district were not hopeful of economic progress. They are indifferent to politics. The political situation, as Chhetri argued, is disappointing for the district people, so they keep on going abroad to earn a living. He suggested the political parties to take confidence of their voters. RSS
