KATHMANDU, Jan 9: Families of security personnel who lost their lives in the course of the decade-long armed conflict in the country met with Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal today, urging him to address their legitimate concerns regarding transitional justice.

During the meeting held on Tuesday, they expressed their support to proceed with the Transitional Justice Bill, which is presently under consideration in the parliament. 

They said they are positive towards the Bill as it equally treats those killed by the State and rebel side during the conflict. 

On behalf of the conflict-affected families of security personnel, Rita Karki expressed her hope that the incumbent government will feel the pains of the conflict-hit community and address their concerns regarding transitional justice. 

In response, PM Dahal assured the families that the Bill does not differentiate between the families of those killed by the State and rebel sides during the conflict. He pledged that there will be no discrimination on these grounds in the future as well. PM Dahal promised to revise the Bill to accommodate the interests of all affected families as much as possible.
