Brahmans unhappy

KATHMANDU: Rastriya Brahman Samaj has stated that it is utterly not in favour of national interest to carve out federal states based on ethnicity, asserting it is injustice to place brahman-chhetri in the category of other castes. Organising a press conference today, the Samaj demanded that the ethnic glory, self-esteem and rights of brahman be protected, claiming ethnicity-based state and federal states are detrimental to the state. Ethnic reservation is impractical and unscientific, and the words such as indigenous nationalities have been defined in an autonomous way, the Samaj concluded. Central Chairperson of the Rastriya Brahman Samaj Narayan Prasad Adhikari said it was not needed to explore the existence of brahman who have been the inhabitants of the country for the last thousands years
