2022 Feb 15, 10:37, Morang

The Rajbansi Society Upliftment Committee has demanded the Province-1 government to name Province-1 as Birat Province.

During a press meet organized as part of the preparation of the 15th extended meeting of the Committee on Monday, the speakers stressed Birat Rajbansi people are the indigenous people in Province-1. They have also links to historic Birat King and once Province-1 is named Birat Province, it would reflect the collective identity of the indigenous community, according to central chair of the Committee, Bhubaneshwar Mandal.

If the province is not named Birat Province, they would launch a peaceful protest, he warned. He further demanded that the Birat Rajbansi people should be enlisted in the Indigenous People's Upliftment National Foundation.

The Committee has also demanded proportional representation of Rajbansi people in the State mechanism, declaration of Birat Rajbansi autonomous council, conservation of Birat Durbar at Bhediyari of Biratnagar, and protection of Birat Rajbansi community as the tourism destination, among others.
