The major leaders of the party gave this commitment in a program held today in Birendranagar on the question of representation of the Dalit community in the elections.

The parties will evaluate the experience and work of Dalit people's representatives in the upcoming election on 4th of Mangsir and create an environment to reach higher positions, take initiatives to make the presence of the Dalit community effective, create an environment for Dalit people's representatives to work without hindrance, both party and legal action procedures if party workers are found to have committed caste discrimination.

Thapa, the state president of the United Samajwadi Party, expressed the view that the participation of the Dalit community in the local government is promising. Rights activist Vasant BK complained that apart from the constitutional obligation, political parties did not show interest in the meaningful participation of the Dalit community. The participants of the program expressed the opinion that it is possible to make the participation of the Dalit community decisive and meaningful only with the will of the leaders of the major parties.
