Gachhadar says won’t back from One Madhes One Pradesh

KATHMANDU: The United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) has demanded to merge two separate states proposed by the State Restructuring Commission (SRC) into one.

Similarly, the UDMF also decided to oppose the proposal floated by the Maoist party. On Thursday, the Maoist party has tabled a new proposal with total 10 provinces including two provinces in southern plain.

A meeting of the UDMF held today decided to implement the demand for ‘One Madhes, One Province’, said co-chairman of Nepal Sadbhavana Party

Laxman Lal Karna. “Decision has been made to meet the demand for ‘One Madhes, One Province’ by slight amendment to the SRC report,” he added.

General secretary of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Loktantrik) Gitendra Dev said the leaders of UDMF protested the Maoist proposal saying that it was unveiled intending to split the Madhes. He said, “We have no reservation over the number of federal states. But, we cannot agree on making two provinces in Madhes.”

Deputy Prime Minister Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar, Minister for Information and Communication Raj Kishor Yadav, chairman of Tarai-Madhes Loktantrik Party Mahantha Thakur, chairman of Tarai-Madhes Loktantrik Party, Nepal, Mahendra Yadav and other leaders of UDMF were present at the meeting. RSS
