KATHMANDU, Sept 25: In a meeting of the Legislature-Parliament today, Legislation Committee presented various reports prepared by it. 

Committee President Ganga Chaudhary presented the Committee's supplementary reports relating to the Civil Code- 2074 BS and Civil Procedure Code Bill-2074 BS, reports on remuneration, conditions of service and facilities of the Chief Justice and Supreme Court judges- 2074 BS and the report on remuneration, conditions of service and facilities of judges of high and district courts- 2074 BS. 

On the occasion, the Legislation Committee President said reports would help timely revise acts concerned. 

Similarly, in the meeting, Social Justice and Human Rights Committee President Sushil Kumar Shrestha presented a review report concerning the Human Rights Commission's report of the fiscal year 2072-73 BS. 

He insisted on the need to implement the report to what he said to strengthen and sustain the democracy. 

The NRHC report came into the House after a long time, he said, calling for putting an end to impunity and establishing the rule of law in the country. 

"There is a situation that one should go through a strike while seeking justice," he said, raising questions why the last rites of Nanda Prasad Adhikari who had died during the fast-onto-death for justice to his murdered son were not conducted yet. "The situation of human rights is not satisfactory. Who is responsible for so?" 

Adhikari had died on September 22, 2014, the 333rd day of his fast while demanding the arrest of murderers of his youngest son Krishna Prasad Adhikari who was killed after abduction on June 6, 2004, in Chitwan during the Maoist armed conflict. 

Likewise, Health Minister Girirajmani Pokhrel presented the Rapti Institute of Health Sciences Bill-2074 BS. The bill was meant for ensuring quality health service to the people while making it accessible to all, he said. RSS
