Prioritise class issues, says Province 3 CM Poudel

Hetauda, July 3

Province 3 Chief Minister Dormani Poudel has spoken of the need to prioritize class issue over the issue of tribe. “We’re committed to addressing the legitimate concerns of each and every community but it might take time as we are in the process of making necessary laws,” said the CM, at a programme on implementation of the statute and Tamang identity organised by Nepal Tamang Ghedung Association, Province 3 committee in Hetauda today.

Further, stating that the constitution has addressed a number of issues related to inclusiveness, Poudel cited in-house exploitation within Madhesi and other communities and said, “Let’s forget whatever happened in the past. The neglected and backward communities of yesteryears are gradually coming to the fore, which is positive.”
