Conflict victims yet to be resettled: NHRC
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has stated that people displaced during the conflict are still to be resettled.
Addressing an interaction organized by the Commission in the capital in Friday, NHRC Secretary Dhruva Nepal said that the displaced had not been able to return to their homes despite the Maoists' repeated announcement of returning seized homes and properties.
“The government also has not been able to come up with a program for the resettlement of the displaced,” he added.
Acting Director of NHRC Yagya Prasad Adhikari accused the government for interfering in the peaceful demonstration organised by the displaced people.
Participating in the interaction, the displaced people demanded that the Maoists should return all seized properties, stop arms display, and that both the government and the Maoists should call on the displaced to return to their villages.
The Maoist leadership has been time and again saying that they are ready to allow the displaced people to return to their villages but the local cadres have been obstructing them from returning and have yet to start the handing over pf seized properties.
