Kathmandu. Member of Parliament Harkamaya Vishwakarma of the Nepal Communist Party (Maoist) has drawn the government’s attention to immediately send periodic reports to the State Affairs and Good Governance Committee (SARD) on eliminating all forms of caste and color discrimination.

She emphasized that Nepal has not submitted any periodic report from 2018 to the present six-year period, and urged the delayed report to be promptly forwarded to the SARD Committee through the Parliament for the government’s attention.

She said, “Honorable Speaker, since 2004, Nepal has faced significant pressure to submit reports, and only once in 2018 did we send a report. Even after that, Nepal has failed to submit periodic reports to the SARD Committee for several years, highlighting weaknesses in protecting the human rights of the Dalit community, challenges in evaluation, assessment, and the inability to effectively implement new plans.

Therefore, through you, Mr. Speaker, I draw the government’s attention to promptly send the delayed report to the SARD Committee.”

The United Nations, based on the universal declaration of human rights to provide justice to oppressed parties in all forms of discrimination, established the State Affairs and Good Governance Committee (SARD) since January 1969.

Nepal also ratified it in January 1971, and the committee’s progress report, along with the provision to send periodic reports to the SARD Committee every two years, reflects Nepal’s commitment. Recommendations for implementation are made to the government by the SARD Committee after discussions.
