Lalitpur, May 27: Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli has said government is committed to protecting the human rights.
Addressing the 29th anniversary of the National Human Rights Commission in Lalitpur today, the Prime Minister pledged to make the commission strong enough for the protection of human rights.
He mentioned that a group is active in terrorizing people by detonating cylinder bombs and indulging in looting in the name of revolution and such activities are of grave concern for the protection of human rights.
Prime minister Oli further said the government is fully committed to press freedom as guaranteed by the constitution and added stress should be laid on fact based journalism rather than the journalism that brings only sensationalism.
He said press sector should not go beyond its limitation by running after anyone on the basis of personal anger or ego.
On the occasion, chairman of the commission Anup Raj Sharma said the commission has addressed 716 complaints filed against violation of human rights and recommended the government for actions against the violators after closely studying the cases of human rights violation.
