Baglung, Oct. 9: Local people have protested the government’s bid to mobilize army for the protection of Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve.

Locals of reserve-affected areas in Baglung and Rukum districts have called for withdrawing the government’s decision to mobilize army.

Various organizations pitching for the rights of indigenous nationalities have protested the decision noting that the the government’s move is meant to disrespect the right of indigenous nationalities.

The mobilization of the army in the reserve would be against the spirit of UN Convention on International Labour Organization, they added.

Nepal is a signatory of the convention. Simialrly, the government had also signed the UN Declaration on Indigenous Nationalities.

Locals of two districts and stakeholders organizations would resort to launch struggle programme if the government did not immediately withdraw the decision, stated in a memorandum submitted to the government.

They also accused that the decision to mobilize army was taken without consulting locals and stakeholders. RSS
