Laxmi Prasad Dhakal, the spokespersons at the Ministry, informed that the meeting of the committee has decided to write to government to announce the crisis zone for the area which will possibly be affected by the flood as a massive landslide has blocked Sunkoshi river flow in Sindhuplalchok and accumulated huge quantity of water in the area.
