The cadres of the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) have blocked the movement of three sugar carrying trucks of Everest Sugar Mill situated in Ramnagar, Mahottari. The trucks were heading to the capital city this morning.

The cadres of the agitating political parties prevented the trucks from going to their destination in the wake of finding that the sugar factory administration was making efforts to supply the sugar despite the ongoing indefinite strikes.
