Dhanlal Rokaya, a local, said that there has been a food crisis for months as the contractor did not transport the agreed rice to the Kawadi temporary depot in Himali village.
The locals have been forced to return empty-handed after running out of rice at the Kawadi temporary depot in Himali rural municipality.
