Yadav demands to implement 11-point agreement

Gorkha Post



POKHARA — Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav on Monday said the United Democratic Madhesi Front would pull back its protest immediately if the government implemented a 11-point understanding reached with Madhesi parties.

Yadav said reluctance on the part of the government to settle the Madhesis’ problems had prolonged the Tarai agitation while addressing a mass meet organised by the Tamuwan-Magrat Joint Struggle Committee in Pokhara.

He reiterated that UDMF was ready to hold dialogs with the government at any time.

“If the government gets serious and shows readiness to meet our demands, we will halt all of our programs immediately,” Yadav added.

Yadav stated that UDMF was ready to settle the crisis through negotiation and dialogue. “We need to take care of our issues ourselves. But, the government representatives rush to New Delhi to seek suggestion on settling domestic issues,” Yadav said.

Yadav also claimed that the newly-promulgated constitution was not acceptable to them, saying it was against the ethnic communities, women, Madhesis and disadvantaged people.
