NA Chair Timilsina suggests effective implementation of laws to end racial discrimination

2022 Jun 05, 6:39, Kathmandu

Chairperson of the National Assembly (NA) Ganesh Prasad Timilsina has emphasised awareness and effective implementation of acts and laws to end racial discrimination and untouchability. The Dalit community should launch a struggle in unison to resolve economic, social and political problems they had been facing, he said at an event organised here on Saturday by the National Dalit Commission on the occasion of the 17th Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and Untouchability-2022.

In the context of "failure" to effectively implement the constitution and laws against untouchability and discrimination, the whole nation should come together to build a civilised society based on equality while resolving problems facing the Dalit community, he viewed.

Similarly, for building a prosperous Nepal, Minister for Youth and Sports Maheshwor Jung Gahatraj stressed the need for ending racial discrimination and untouchability facing the Dalit community for ages.

Also, despite Nepal having been declared an untouchability-free nation, the Dalit community is still facing discrimination due to 'failure' to implement it in practice, the Commission Chair Devraj Bishwokarma pointed out.
