KATHMANDU: Dalit rights activists stressed on the need of identifying
reasons behind the decline of Dalit population every year.
It was said at an interaction organized by National Census Dalit Watch
on Tuesday to review the campaign of Dalit population assurance in the
national Census initiated with the slogan 'Let not be repeated and
Constituent Assembly (CA) member Khadga Bahadur Basyal argued the
present Census may also show the declining trend of Dalit population
since most of the youths residing in cities from various parts of the
country do not tend to show their ethnic identity.
No participation of Dalit in preparing the questionnaires for Census
has resulted in this problem, he added.
Director General of Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), Uttam Narayan
Malla underlining the need of conducting separate Census for bringing
out statistics of nationalities and language users said the
preliminary report of the Census-2068 will be unveiled by mid-June,
Chairperson of National Dalit Commission, Bijul Kumar Biswokarma,
Dalit rights activists, Hira Biswokarma, Ganesh BK, among others urged
all Dalits to move ahead with unity for their rights.
