They expressed such opinions during an interaction program organized by non-registered Bhutanese in Beldangi on Saturday.

Accusing the local authority of ignoring genuine demands of asylum seekers from Bhutan, Damak Chapter President of Human Rights Organization of Nepal (HURON), Dev Prasad Subedi, requested the government to remain abided morally to begin the registration process within April as committed in last November.

He claimed that the sufferings of non-registered Bhutanese have further deepened since the government has ignored to treat those people as humans.

Like Subedi, representatives from various local political parties including the Unified CPN (Maoist), CPN-UML and Nepali Congress also blamed the government of not being serious towards granting refugee status for all non-registered exiled Bhutanese.

Local political leaders asked the government to either remove asylum seekers from the UN-monitored camps or grant them refugee status if they are Bhutanese.

Speaking at the program, women leader Durga Devi Bista warned that her group and its supporters would sternly protest if authority fails to begin the registration process within the deadline committed by the government.

Camp Secretary of Beldangi camp Dhan Bir Subba and Chairperson of the Bhutanese Refugee Representative Repatriation Committee (BRRRC) Dr Bhampa Rai also addressed the gathering, and extended their support towards the demands of non-registered Bhutanese, mix-marriage and asylum seekers.
