Achievements of Dalit rights and the context of new CA election

YAN organized an interaction program entitled “Achievements of Dalit rights and the context of new constituent assembly election” on 21st May, 2013 at TJRC hall. The program was facilitated by Gita Chaudhary, member of YAN. There was participation of about 45 youths. The guest speaker was Mr. Padam Sundas, Chairperson of Samata Foundation and a senior dalit right activist. Mr Sundas stated that dalit problem is one of the major problems of Nepal. "Though Nepal has been declared as untouchability free State, but in practice, untouchability still prevails in society. It is unfortunate to see untouchability inside dalit community. To eradicate untouchability from society, firstly we must kick out untouchability practices from out dalit community" said Mr. Sundas. He concluded his remarks by emphasizing on proportional representation of dalit in each and every unit or organs of the state. It was good to observe active participation of youths. The program was very interactive and lasted for about two hours.
