Call for Nepalis in Japan to mitigate anomalies

TOKYO, JAPAN: A discussion took place in Fukuoka Prefecture of Japan aimed at mitigating anomalies among the Nepalis in the country on Saturday.

The interaction was organised by 'Our Nepal, We Nepali' campaign, where speakers stressed on the need for every side to become responsible in addressing the problems among the Nepali population, that is increasing of late in Japan.

Speaking at the event, President of Non-resident Nepalis Association Bhawan Bhatta said everyone should be responsible in making student life in Japan easy and trouble-free. "Struggle and plans should go ahead together, and everyone has equal responsibility to resolve the problem," he added.

At the programme, Prof. Masako Tanaka of the Sofia University said that anomalies have been increasing in the Nepali community as many Nepalis run after money soon after they arrive in Japan. "Japan is a great source of opportunities for Nepalis, hence the right path should be used to utilize it," Tanaka said.

Various other speakers including Nabin Adhikari of Fukuoka Nepal Society and Laxman Baniya of NRNA stressed on the need for Nepalis to win the trust of the Japanese citizens by resolving internal disputes and concentrating on the work.

The event also saw attendances of Officials from the Fukuoka Prefecture and the Fukuoka Immigration Department and Fukuoka police.
