KAILALI, Nov 27: Last year’s local elections held after a hiatus of 20 years introduced hundreds of Dalit women to politics. Though they were assured of posts in various government offices, they are still far from the decision-making process. The constitution had made it mandatory to include Dalit women in each ward, but those members lament that they have been left out of development activities. They claim that all the decisions are taken without their knowledge as they are not invited during discussions.
