KATHMANDU — Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party Chairman Mahanta Thakur has said that the Tarai agitation has been named as a breaking down move despite the fact that Madhesi leaders have for the longest time been itching to look for answer for pervasive Madhes crisis within of Nepali region.
Speaking at an interaction with journalists in Kathmandu on Sunday leader Thakur said: “We are seeking solution within Nepal and have shown a way-out through meaningful federalism.”
“The issue of Madhes is not meant to split the nation or to be easily ignored as parties in the race to gain power,” Thakur said.
He challenged that Madhes will never take rest until their agendas of Madhesi nationality, identity and rights were fulfilled adding further that the Madhesis have become victim of discrimination in their own land for appearing different than common Nepali.
He also criticized that government made no efforts to hold dialogues with them during this period.
“Notwithstanding the government assurance to withdraw the charges against Madhesi protestors, Madhesi people are being terrorised and humiliated,” Thakur said.
