Meanwhile, humanitarian agencies are unable to deliver aid to earthquake victims due to India-Nepal border blockade since 120 days. Food and other necessities have not been supplied to survivors of Nepal earthquake victims.

Blockades along the border between Nepal and India have caused fuel shortages. Helicopters operating for the World Food Programme have also been grounded.
