Chairperson of the Parliamentary Women and Social Affairs Committee, Roshan Karki, has said that the National Children Council should not be scrapped.

During a discussion on 'Council's status, necessity, and relevance' in today's meeting of the Committee, Chairperson Karki mentioned that it was necessary to promote the Council, which is active in the protection of child rights. "If required the Committee is committed to recommending to the government in writing for the development of the Council in coordination with the line Ministry," she said.

Presenting a working paper on 'Council's status, necessity, and relevance', former executive director of the Council, Milan Dharel, shared that it was necessary to strengthen the council. He further said around 200 children's homes and temporary protection centers have filed applications at Council for permission and Council has been carrying out monitoring and regulation of more than 170 children's homes every year.

It was the responsibility of the Council to identify the families of around 7,000 children, who were brought to the children's homes against the law, their reconciliation with families, and their rehabilitation mentioned Dharel.

Similarly, the Vice-Chairperson of the Council, Bam Bahadur Baniya said the attempt to scrap the Council was wrong.
