Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has vowed to promptly deliver justice to conflict survivors by effectively addressing their demands. 

In his address to a program organized by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the occasion of the 74th International Human Rights Day here on Saturday, PM Deuba said the government was cautious to dispense justice to the conflict victims and their families at the earliest. 

"The government is fully committed to preserve and promote human rights", he said, adding, "The government is cautiously working to swiftly address the demands of conflict survivors in light of justice". 

Lauding the efforts of NHRC, Deuba assured the human rights constitutional body to address its problems and grievances. 

On the occasion, NHRC chair Tapa Bahadur Magar raised the issue of justice to the survivors of armed conflict. "The agenda of delivering justice to the armed conflict victims has become uncertain due to reluctance in framing respective laws in line with the verdict of the Supreme Court, human rights commission's recommendations and international standards to make the transitional justice mechanisms powerful ", he asserted. 

He expressed dissatisfaction on the political parties' act to present the persons accused of criminal offence and involved in serious human rights violations and recommended for legal actions as the candidate in the election. 

NHRC Chair also complained that there was no access to justice of the survivors of gender-based violence and caste-based discrimination. "It is the shared responsibility of all tiers of the governments and political parties to implement the inclusion related provisions of the Constitution. But, the issue of proportional inclusion has been limited to the legal and technical subject matter". 

At the program, Dr Gaurishanker Lal Das and Pratima Gurung were honoured with the late Dayaram memorial award. 

This year the 74th International Human Rights Day was marked with the slogan dignity, freedom and justice for all'. The day has been celebrated across the globe since 1948.
