[ZESTCaste] Nepal: Dr. Bhattarai for Dalit's dignified representation

Dr. Bhattarai for Dalit's dignified representation

KATHMANDU, Aug 12: Stressing the need of representation of Dalits in
each state organ in the new constitution, Vice Chairman of Unified CPN
(Maoist) Dr Baburam Bhattarai said the present challenge was to
safeguard the achievements of Jana Andolan.

He said this while releasing a book "Marxism, Dalit and
Bisheshadhikar" written by Constituent Assembly member and Coordinator
of Nepal National Dalit Mukti Morcha (NNDMM) Tilak Pariyar amid a
function organized by Ratna Maya Literature Protection Committee in
the Capital on Friday.

The writer (Pariyar) has taken the people's movement to a height by
adding in the knowledge he gained through practical struggles in the
book, said Dr Bhattarai.

"If the 10-year-old people's war couldn't have addressed the agendas
of Dalits, Jana Andolan would have never met success," he said. "There
is a need to address the problems of the Dalit community who are
treated as the labour class amid racial and social suppression in the
new constitution."

At the function, Secretary of Maoist party CP Gajurel said the role of
Dalit, women and marganalized communities was praiseworthy from the
beginning of the people's war and the Maoist party has been pushing
ahead the agenda of ensuring special rights to Dalits for their

Coordinator of Central Publications Department of NNDMM Padam Sundas
said the writer has closely looked at the Dalit movement in his book
that contains 16 articles and four interviews.
