Issuing a statement today Executive Director of LANCAU Nepal Mr. Prabhakar Bagchand said,
“The legacy of inequality and injustice created by caste system has taken a toll on the overall development of this country. Enactment of Law alone will not put an end to this ugly caste system. The government needs to realize that they need to wage a virtual war for social justice and equity. It is important to ensure more sensitivity into law enforcing officials. Dalits today remain at the bottom rung of the country’s social and economic ladder, and until this is reversed through firm and honest action Nepal will not be considered a nation in real sense.”
