Bardghat (Nawalparasi), Oct 8: CPN (Unified Socialist) leader Jhalanath Khanal has said despite the attainment of political rights through various political movements, citizens have yet to fully experience of the realization of their socio-economic rights.
Speaking at a mass meeting organised by the party under its ongoing ‘Socialist Awakening Campaign’ here on Saturday, the leader said people’s right to freedom of opinion, to assemble and so on have been guaranteed, but their socio-economic transformation is still awaited as the class-based exploitation has not been eradicated. The former Prime Minister stressed the need of eliminating hunger from the country to bridge the gap caused by the class-based discrimination.
He declared that existing capitalism would not put an end to exploitation, advocating for scientific socialism as its alternative.
Party general secretary, Ghanashyam Bhusal, argued that the capitalism was responsible for the deterioration of government structures and the industrial sector and said this system is just capable of serving the interests of capitalists. ‘Socialism is the need of the hour and the tool to end all sorts of discrimination and unethical practices in the society.”
