LALITPUR: As the country is passing through difficult transitional phase and there are high chances of violations of human rights of general people, the positions at the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), the constitutional rights watchdog of the country, became vacant from Sunday.
The Chief Commissioners and Commissioners of the NHRC completed their six-year term on Sunday. The government has not done any homework to make new appointments and fill the vacant posts.
President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav had appointed Kedar Nath Upadhyay as chairperson, and Ram Nagina Singh, Gauri Pradhan, Dr. Leela Pathak, and Dr. K B Rokaya as members in the national rights watchdog on 17th September 2007 and are retiring today,
The appointments were made on the recommendation of the Constitutional Council following a parliamentary hearing. It is likely that the posts will remain vacant till the election of the Constituent Assembly slated for November 19 as the leaders are very busy due to political affairs of the country.
Till the new appointments are made, Acting Secretary Bed Prasad Bhattarai will lead the NHRC. The Commission played important role for the protection and promotion of human rights in the country.
