SC order to govt
The Supreme Court on Monday directed government authorities, including the Office of the Prime Minister, the Cabinet and the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, to ensure that the Dalits are not deprived of their rights to rent rooms in the Kathmandu valley.
Stating that house-owners in the valley refuse to rent rooms to the Dalits, Dil Bahadur Bishwokarma had filed a petition. A division bench of Justices Min Bahadur Rayamajhi and Ram Nagina Singh issued the order.
The bench also issued an order to the government authorities to clean the Rani Pokhari within three months. The bench was responding to a PIL filed by advocate Prakash Mani Sharma on behalf of the Pro Public.
