KATHMANDU: Despite the legal provision against untouchability, the practice exists in many parts of the country. Amid this reality, a ten-year strategy on Dalit movement against caste-based discrimination and practices of untouchability has been endorsed.
The strategy was jointly prepared by the National Dalit Commission, Dalit NGO Federation, Suppressed and Dalit Community Upliftment Development Committee and Badi Development Committee. The strategy was endorsed during a workshop held on Sunday. On the occasion, Dalit NGO Federation Chairperson Gajadhar Sunar discussed about the thematic preliminary issues of Dalit movement, its achievements and challenges.
Dalit leader Khim Bahadur Bishwakarma said Dalit people are not aware of oppression and added that Dalit movement has not been effective in absence of cooperation among the stakeholders.
Dalit Commission member Ruku Ranpal said they would draw the attention of the government towards the implementation of the strategy.
The Dolakha district chapter of CPN-UML youth front, Youth Association Nepal (YAN), has warned of seizing the government vehicles found being misused.
The UML youth front has concluded that the misuse of government vehicles and motorcycles—bearing white number plates—for private works is on the rise. The YAN has informed the chief district officer about the decision to capture the government vehicles found being misused and hand them over to the administration. But the YAN will not take action against the vehicles possessing necessary documents to justify their operation for official purpose, YAN informed at the press meet.
Chief District Office Pralahad Pokharel said it is the duty of administration to curb the misuse of government vehicles and urged everyone to not try to take the law into their own hand.
