Kathmandu, June 17
The main opposition party Nepali Congress has expressed its solidarity with stakeholders and public who have launched a nationwide protest against the Guthi Bill.
Speaking at a meeting of the House of Representatives on Monday, Congress lawmaker Dilendra Prasad Badu said the party would support all street protests against the bill as they raised the genuine issue.
Stakeholders and local activists have been protesting the bill recently registered in the Federal Parliament claiming it would keep traditional community organisations called ‘guthi’ and properties owned by them under the control of government. They have accused the government of trying to create a new place to recruit their cadres through the bill.
Meanwhile, Badu also urged the government to seek a solution to the issue through talks.
“I wish the government would solve the problem through talks,” he said, “The government should withdraw the bill.”
