Main victims’ issues not addressed in TRC bill-RPP Chair
Taplejung : Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) chairperson Rajendra Lingden said the bill framed to amend the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Act, 2071 BS was not in favour of victims.
At a press conference organized at Taplejung headquarters, Fungling, today, he said the bill has only addressed the issues of key sides of the conflict.
The bill is an attempt to free the rebel side only, he said, it has relegated the conflict survivors to the back-burner.
“The conflict had not only involved rebel side and state side. General public who did not associate themselves in any side were the most affected victims. But, they had come across the biggest loss and damage”, Lingden added.
However, the present bill has not inserted any measures to dispense justice to the most-affected people, he commented.
On another note, RPP Chair Lingden ruled out the need of three tiers of the governments in the name of federalism. If the local level is empowered and province scrapped, it would reduce financial burden and also bail the country out of economic crisis, he asserted. (RSS)
