Third gender population sought

  • Sharebar

The third gender community in the country has expressed concern over its exclusion from the census report issued on Tuesday by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS). “We doubt the government intention as it has excluded third gender population from the report,” said Pradip Khadka, a member of the Blue Diamond Society. CBS officials have said the report was preliminary and the population of third gender, disabled, children and other kinds of people will be made public only after further data processing. “The details have been collected in the second phase of census. The final report will be publicised by the end of the fiscal year,” said Rudra Suwal, chief of the population unit at the CBS.
