BAJURA, April 7: Badimalika Municipality has come up with a noble idea in a bid to enforce old-age security. It will deprive those, who are found staying away from their responsibility to look after their old parents, of administrative facilities like birth and death registrations it provides.
Likewise, those who are found promoting Chhaupadi, involving in gender violence and drinking will be denied the facilities.
Speaking at an interaction on 'Chhaupadi-free campaign and drive against gender violence' in the district on Friday, the Municipality mayor Padam Baduwal said the municipality is committed to enforcing the rules. He also pointed out the role of priests and witchdoctors in controlling racial and gender discrimination.
Kabita Bista urged building a civic society which will treat women equally as men.
The one-day interaction also issued a seven-point declaration. Witch-doctors, priests and local people also participated in the intercourse. RSS
