Kathmandu, Jan 25 :  SAATHI, an organisation, established 25 years ago with an objective of saving people from discrimination and violation, has given continuity to a campaign against Chhaugoth and marriage with dowry.

At a programme organised here on Thursday on the occasion of silver jubilee of the organisation, Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba urged woman leaders to fight against gender-based violence.

Saying the position that the women have got from three-tier elections has shown that Nepal is in favour of women's empowerment, Prime Minister Deuba said that women from all categories including indigenous and Dalit have been incorporated in the mainstream of politics and development.

He said, "The constitution of Nepal has guaranteed the women's right. The government has adopted a zero tolerance policy against women violence."

On the occasion, PM Deuba honoured Madhuri Rana Singh, Arzu Rana Deuba, Pramada Shah and Bandana Rana for their contribution in establishment of 'SAATHI'.
