NHRC urges to ease life of commoners

KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has said that its serious attention has been drawn towards the deteriorating human rights condition and troubled daily life of the citizens due to obstruction in regular supplies of the petroleum products.

Issuing a press statement on Wednesday, Acting NHRC Secretary Surya Deuja said that the condition of human rights has become from bad to worse due to the Tarai-Madhes strike for past two months now and obstruction in the regular supply of petroleum products from September 23.

The rights monitoring body has drawn attention of the stakeholders and government for the strong promotion, protection and fulfillment of people's economic, social, cultural, civic and political rights of the common people as the fundamental rights of people including education, health, employment, food and shelter and people's free movement were adversely affected.

The NHRC has urged all concerned to resolve the ongoing obstruction in the border points through talks and dialogue.
