Dec 21, 2016-
The Social Justice and Human Rights Committee of the Legislature-Parliament has started taking suggestions from the stakeholders and experts on the proposed bill related to the National Dalit Commission (NDC).
The committee has also formed a sub-committee to speed up the process to ensure early endorsement of the bill.
Committee Chair Sushil Kumar Shrestha said wide and detailed discussions were underway to get the bill endorsed at the earliest.
Hari Prasad Poudel, joint secretary at the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development, said some corrections on the draft bill are likely after consultation with the Ministry of Law, Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers.
Advocate Shyam Kumar Bishwokarma pointed that the bill had failed to ensure the representation of women within the Dalit community.
