BIRGUNJ: Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) and Home Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha has urged one and all to keep up the inter-caste and religious tolerance.
Addressing a press conference in Birgunj today, he called for maintaining the unity in diversity since Nepal’s identity is a nation with multi-ethnic, multi-linguistic and multi-cultural identities.
The DPM and Home Minister warned that the government would take action in accordance with the existing laws and the constitution against those undermining the social harmony and disturbing its unity.
He also urged one and all to stand in favour of social goodwill and national unity along with tolerance towards each other’s religion, culture, customs, faith, sentiments and traditions.
Stating that the government is committed to maintaining good governance in the country by eliminating corruption, DPM Shrestha also pledged to take the gold smuggling scam and the Lalita Niwas land grab scam to its final conclusion and to bring to justice all the culprits.
“In the beginning, the Department of Revenue Investigation carried out investigation into the gold smuggling case and now the Nepal Police’s Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) is looking into this,” he said.
Home Minister Shresths said, “We will also go for a high-level investigation process after carrying out the legal and structural and associated probe and reaching to a conclusion once the CIB completes its investigations.”
