Also speaking on the occasion, Chairperson of Rural Development and Research Centre, Dhangadhi Dirgha Raj Upadhyaya and governance activist Thakur Prasad Kariyapradhan also echoed the need of addressing problems facing by minorities and disadvantaged communities including LGBTI to enable them to assert and enjoy their human rights.
