Local Govt System

'Implement constitutional provisions fully'

Full implementation of the constitutional provisions relating to the local government system can help eradicate the existing caste-based discrimination in society, said Justice Gholam Rabbani yesterday.
“If the government develops the local government system fully as enshrined in the constitution, discrimination on grounds of caste and profession can easily be eradicated. Our constitution has this arrangement and we must use this provision,” he said at a seminar as the chief guest.
Bangladesh Dalit and Excluded Rights Movement (BDERM) and Nagorik Udyog jointly organised the seminar titled 'Draft policy and directives of United Nations in effective eradication of discrimination based on caste and profession' at the National Press Club in the city.
Prof Mesbah Kamal said that if a group of people can be alienated anyhow from society, it is easier for the ruling class to rule the group. The caste system was created to oppress the group.
BDERM President Mukul Sikder presided over the seminar, which was moderated by Nagorik Udyog Chief Executive Zakir Hossain.
Advocate Tajul Islam and Majharul Islam jointly presented a keynote paper.
Prof HKS Arefin, general secretary of Bothanki Solomon, and other Dalit leaders were present at the seminar.
