Kathmandu. CPN (UML) has demanded the government to rectify the decision to dissolve the Land Problem Resolution Commission. UML spokesperson Pradip Kumar Gyawali issued a statement today demanding immediate rectification of the government’s decision to dissolve the commission and attack the expectations and rights of the people.
In the statement, he said that the UML has always been aware and sensitive towards the rights and interests of the landless, squatters, dalits and unorganized settlers, adding that the party would always remain united towards the legitimate demands and voices of the landless and squatters.
The government on Tuesday decided to dissolve the commission. “The government’s decision to dissolve the commission comes after the data collection of landless, squatters, dalits and squatters was completed,” said in a statement released by Gyawali.
