Naya Shakti Party's Coordinator, Dr Baburam Bhattarai has expressed his dissatisfaction towards the government and the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) over the stalled progress of reconstruction 15 months after the massive earthquake struck with Gorkha's Barpak as the epicentre.

At an interaction 'Gorkha Reconstruction: Possibility and Challenges', former PM Dr Bhattarai stressed on need to distribute Rs 500,000 in reconstruction grant to quake-stricken rather than Rs 200,000.
