President Bidya Devi Bhandari has underscored the need for all sectors to be active and to manage resources prudently to guarantee human rights.
In a message of best wishes on the occasion of 70th International Human Rights Day today, President Bandari said the new constitution had ensured the recognition, protection and promotion of human rights while it has provisioned various agencies in the constitution to implement human rights.
President Bhandari in the message said, “I believe that one and all could feel the human rights ensured once these agencies would start discharging their duties. Therefore, although the principle of Human rights is universal, its implementation lies within the territory of a State.”
She urged the authorities concerned to incorporate human rights education in the education system to make sure the ideals of human rights reaches far and wide among the people.
Similarly, in a separate message on the same occasion, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said that the government has accorded high priority to the issues related to the transitional justice and human rights and was committed to ensuring justice to the conflict victims.
PM Oli also reaffirmed his commitment for amendment in the legal and structural provisions for enhancing performances of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons (CIEDP).
December 10 every year is celebrated as the International Human Rights Day in commemoration of the promulgation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
The Head of the Government expressed also confidence that December 10 would still add new enthusiasm and energy among the people as the country was ushering towards realizing the national motto of ‘Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali’.
