Major parties nominate Dr. Pariyar in the State Restructuring Commission

Kathmandu, December 04-The major three parties – UCPN (Maoist), CPN (UML) and NC – and UDMF on Sunday decided to nominate Dr. Madan Pariyar, a prominent Dalit intellectual and rights activists, in the recently formed State Restructuring Commission (SRC).

Pariyar has been nominated in the SRC amid widespread criticism faced by the parties and government that there is not a single representation of people of Dalit community, who make a major portion of the population, in the powerful body entrusted with the responsibility to come up with a best possible model for the democratic Federal system in the country.

The Cabinet will now have to formally appoint Dr. Pariyar in what will now be a nine-member commission. News source:
