Call to uplift ethnic Nunia community
 

Kathmandu, June 13

 Ramchandra Mahato, chairman of Nepal Nunia Promotion Organization protested the government action of not including Nunia caste on the list of ethnic groups at a press conference in the capital Friday.
Describing the origin and status of Nunia caste he said, “Nunia caste is the most backward caste. Despite having a population of about 300 thousand, this caste is deprived of the basic fundamental rights as well as education, economic, social, cultural and political aspects. The sad thing is that the government has not thought about the development of this caste.” He said that in the past, Nunia group used to prepare soda and salt so they were told Nunia. Later, they started doing construction works but now they are aware and raising their voice against domination.
He added, “Though this caste is registered for a claim of indigenous community, the government is neglecting about the uplift of this caste not keeping it in the list of indigenous groups. So we are ready to fight for our right.”
Mina Pandey, Nepali Congress leader, wished for the betterment of the Nunia group and encouraged them to get their rights during the formation of a new Nepal. 
Ganesh Bahadur Khatri, central member of the Federation of Nepalese Farmers, also focused on the unity of the Nunia group to get the rights they desire and really are in need of.
Upendra Yadav, chief guest of the programme, said that Nepal was very lucky to have unity in diversity but the rights are not equal to all castes. He said, “Nepal is considered as the garden of four castes and thirty six subcastes but the flowers of this garden are not cared equally. Among them is Nunia, which has very low representation in our country. The weakness seems in government’s inability to draft a new constitution caring for the right, shelter and other facilities of all caste groups.”
Yadav, speaking to the media persons on the sidelines of the program, said that, “The need of the hour is the formation of a new consensus government before the integration of Nepal Army and People’s Liberation Army.”
