It has been learnt that women leaders of the Nepali Congress, especially minister Kamala Pant, are keen to table a motion at the forthcoming NC convention regarding love and inter-caste marriages between members of the NC. Speaking at a function, Minister Pant stated that the UML and other communist parties encouraged inter-caste marriages between members of the party and those parties took the initiative in getting members of their party married if the members so desired. Inter-caste marriages were normal in the communist parties.
The NC, in contrast, only abuses its female members?male members fall in love with female colleagues, use them and then move ahead. NC men do not have a very positive opinion about their female colleagues and this leads to discrimination against NC female members. It is in this regard that minister Pant is going to table a motion soon.
