Dec 13, 2018-
Chief Minister of Province 5 Shankar Pokhrel said the people are empowered if the government is stronger.
Addressing a workshop seminar in Rupandehi on Wednesday, he said the people can fully exercise their fundamental rights only when the government is strong.
“We do not get results when the government is weak. We should all think about ways to make the government stronger to ensure the people can exercise their fundamental rights,” he said.
He claimed that the country was now headed towards development and prosperity.
NHRC commissioner Govinda Sharma Poudel stressed that the governments at all the three levels should be serious when it comes to protecting the citizens’ rights.
