KATHMANDU: Rastriya Dalit Network (RDN) Nepal has demanded the implementation of “Study report on the situation of freed Kamaiya, Kamlahari and Haruwa-charuwa-2079”.
Saying the freed haruwa-charuwa, kamaiya and kamlahari have not been rehabilitated yet, the RDN has demanded the implementation of the report immediately.
The Kamaiya, Kamlahari and Haruwa-charuwa are the traditional indentured bonded labour practices which have been already abolished.
The study committee formed under coordination of Constituent Assembly member Shyam Shrestha had recently submitted the report to the government.
Issuing a press release today, RDN has stressed the need of completing the task of collecting data of freed haruwa-charuwa before coming election by forming an implementation mechanism.
The press release reads, “We call on leaders of freed haruwa-charuwa, haliya or kamaiya and kamlahari movement to involve in the rehabilitation movement strongly as like before.”
The organisation was established on 22 August 2000 under the main slogan, “Next Nepal without untouchability and racial discrimination is possible, Let’s build it” for long-term solution of problems of Dalit.
