UML in front for women’s empowerment: Chair Oli

KATHMANDU – CPN (UML) Chairperson KP Sharma Oli has said his party is in front for women’s empowerment and awareness.

At a programme organised by Motidevi Memorial Centre on the occasion of 114th International Women’s Day here today, Chair Oli asserted that his party would always remain ahead in the campaign of social transformation, women awareness and social justice. He underscored that the issues—ensuring 40 percent women representatives out of all people’s representatives in all three levels, and 33 per cent women’s reservation in state bodies- should be taken as achievements.

Also the former Prime Minister, Oli unveiled ‘Sangharshshil Youddhaharu’ and honoured social campaigners, outstanding researchers and contributors to communist movement. Inspiring lady Dhammawati Guruma, young scientist Rojita Buddhacharya, wildlife photographer Binita Bhandari, entrepreneur Sabitri Thapa, social worker Shanti Chadda, politician Sona Chhedung Lama, brave bus driver Renuka Thapa, doctor Tulsi Shahi, social campaigner Soniya Sadaya and campaigner against human trafficking Charimaya Thamang were honoured on the occasion.
