Freed bonded communities demand budget to restore justice to them

2024 May 25, 7:37,

The freed bonded labourers have demanded the government that it allocated budget in the upcoming fiscal year to restore justice to their community.

At a press meet organized here Friday, the former freed Kamiya, Kamlari, Harwacharwa, and Haliya lamented that their voices for restorative justice and support in the livelihood remained unheard by the State for long.

Rastriya Mukta Haliya Samaj Federation Nepal said it was working for the socio-economic rights of freed Haliya (land tillers). Despite liberation, freed land tillers are enduring severe poverty and multiple challenges in their daily lives, the Federation shared.

 Federation Chair Ishwor Sunar said the issues of freed Haliya remained unaddressed, as he said, they had put forth an 11-point demand before the government so that it would address through the budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2081-82 BS.

The Federation stressed the need to implement a study report about the freed Kamaiya, Haliya, Kamlari, and Harawa Charawa presented by the committee chaired by rights activist Shyam Shrestha in 2078 BS.

The Federation also urged the government come up with an integrated action to pay heed to the concerns of these communities.

Rastriya Dalit Network (RDN) Nepal Vice Chair Shyam Sunar, Freed Kamaiya Women Development Forum, Kailali's Chair Sima Chaudhary, and Freed Kamlari Development Forum's Hiramoti Chaudhary voiced they were posing demand for long but in vain.

They urged the government to ensure resources for them in the upcoming budget.
