KATHMANDU: Several organisations today formed a loose network in a bid to draw the attention of the government to the ongoing crisis in the country. The organisations include over 48 educational, business and professional bodies.

Lakshya Bahadur KC, senior vice president of Private and Boarding Schools’ Organisation Nepal (PABSON) said that the network was formed to draw attention of the government on the growing culture of impunity and lack of security in different parts of the country. “Human rights violations are rampant, while the political parties continue to squabble for power. It almost seems as if they are not bothered about common people’s plight at all,” he said, adding that they would submit a six-point memorandum to the Prime Minister and the Home Minister on Sunday to draw their attention to the problem.

KC warned that if the government failed to maintain peace and security in the country, they would launch a series of protest programmes against the government. “People had a lot of expectations from the political leaders. However, the inability of the successive governments to address people’s plight have made us hopeless,” he rued.

According to KC, several organisations such as Federation of Nepalese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Professional Alliance for Peace and Democracy, PABSON, Guardian’s Association, Human Rights Organisation and many others have joined hands to press the government to ensure basic human rights as well as peace and security in the country.
