Cases related to heinous crimes not withdrawn, clarifies PM's Secretariat
The Private Secretariat of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has made it clear that the cases related to those accused of heinous crimes in Tikapur of Kailali and other places would not be withdrawn.
In a press release it issued Friday, PM's private secretariat said not a single case of atrocious crimes has been taken back nor was there any situation for doing so.
A meeting of the Council of Ministers on Thursday had decided to acknowledge the Tarai-Madhes movement as a political movement.
In response to the news carried in the media regarding the decisions of the Council of Ministers, PM's Private Secretariat refuted the news published by the media regarding the decision of the Cabinet meeting that cases related to the heinous crimes have been withdrawn.
The Cabinet meeting had on Thursday directed the Ministry of Home Affairs to work for the process of withdrawing the cases filed against people who were not involved in the incidents of riots and killing including in Tikapur but who were implicated in false charges based on suspicion and prejudice, in a way that would be in consonance with the law.
In a bid to create the environment conducive for the second phase local-level elections, the government had made a decision to initiate the process to take back, as per the law, the false cases filed against those people not involved in such incidents.
The secretariat has appealed to all to work toward making preparations for the second phase local-level election which is being held on June 14. RSS

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.
