Government takes legal action against communal violence: PM Dahal

Kathmandu, June 20: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has said the government is committed to implementing all sorts of possible measures for containing activities capable of jeopardizing religious and social harmony and unity.

Giving his replies to queries from lawmakers in today's meeting of the House of Representatives, the Prime Minister said the government will enact legal actions against any move or activity intending to jeopardize social integrity and promote communal violence in the cover of other affairs.

As he said, the government has implemented strategic measures at the central and local levels through the Home Ministry and local administrations to enhance religious and social harmony.

"The government is committed to protecting and promoting social-cultural integrity, tolerance, and goodwill amidst caste, linguistic, cultural, and geographical diversities, special characteristics of the Nepali society."

Vows high-level committee to probe cooperatives-related complains

In the meeting, the Prime Minister said a process has been initiated to establish a high-level committee to collect grievances and complaints over cooperatives from across the country, to identify trouble-ridden cooperatives, and to take further actions accordingly.

He pledged to address the issues concerning cooperatives. Those cooperatives that are already trouble-ridden but not announced yet will be identified by such a mechanism.

The further process ahead includes the management of properties of those cooperatives and the return of the savings, he added.

According to him, the support of the Department of Cooperatives, the Province Office of Cooperatives Registrar, and the respective local bodies will be sought for implementing this plan.

Describing cooperatives as one of the components of a three-pillar economy, he applauded their contribution to improving the living standard and economic status of the citizens. He underlined the need to operate cooperatives adhering to their basic norms and values being guided by the principle of self-regulation.

"But it does not mean that the entire cooperatives have issues. However, quality development in the cooperative sector is awaited and the government is serious about addressing this gap," the Prime Minister added.
