KATHMANDU: The main opposition party CPN (UML) has demanded the government to correct its decision of scrapping the Land Issue Resolving Commission.

Issuing a press release on Wednesday, UML Spokesperson Pradeep Kumar Gyawali demanded immediate correction to the government’s decision, saying the decision has hit the people’s expectations and rights.

He made it clear that there would always be solidarity of the party towards the genuine demands and voices of the landless, squatters and Dalits, adding the CPN (UML) is always aware and sensitive towards their rights and welfare.

The government on Tuesday had decided to scrap the Commission.

The statement reads, “Ownership of financially and socially poor class people will be developed towards the change only if they get benefits of political change and the change can get its meaning only after this.”

The government’s decision scrapping the Commission has jeopardized the fundamental rights of millions of landless squatters, Dalits at a time when the problem, taking place in the country since long, of landless, squatters and Dalits is moving ahead towards the resolution in a sustainable manner.

The Commission was formed as per the Land related Act (eighth amendment) to implement the state’s directive principles and policies, mentioned the statement.

The Commission was formed around one year ago and district-based committee of the Commission was formed in all the 77 districts.
