UNION ministers U Soe Thane and U Win Tun inspected the reclamation of land plots in Hakha, Chin State yesterday as part of resettlement plans for flood and landslide victims.
The torrential rains in July and August triggered landslides that destroyed 870 homes in Hakha.
The victims were safely evacuated and will soon be resettled on 520 acres of land along the Hakha-Hpalan Road, according to Chin State Chief Minister U Hong Ngai.
The chief minister said that more than 200 houses are under construction and are expected to be completed in December.
In Kalay, 358 houses will be built for victims. Officials said that the recovery project included water and power utilities.
While in Hakha, the union ministers also inspected irrigation facilities, reviewed fire-prevention measures and visited a site where a dam is being constructed. The dam is 168 acre-feet.
