N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU: The freed Haliyas here have encroached on public land started cultivating it saying the government did not pay any heed to address their demands.
The Haliyas are the bonded tillers working for their landlords for generations and the government abolished this practice that had been going on in the mid and far-west of the district five years ago.
Farm labourers working as Haliyas here have launched a phase-wise agitation since August 5 citing the age-old practice has not been abolished in the far-west region.
Fifty-five families of former Haliyas at Jugada-3 occupied public land on Thursday and started cultivating it as part of their movement, said Pratap Auji, president of the District Haliya Liberation Society, Bajura.
According to the Society, there are more than 1,700 Haliyas in Bajura district alone but the government has certified 1,098 Haliyas only. RSS
