NEFIN, leaders deny to bargain unitary-ethnic-identity-states

KATHMANDU: Lawmakers and leaders of different political parties belonging to indigenous communities have decided to go for struggle if their demands were not addressed in today’s talks with the government team.

Organising a meeting today, the leaders and lawmakers have decided to remain firm on the demands of federal states with single ethnic identity, rights to self-determination, preferential rights, self-autonomous provinces and others as floated by the Indigenous Nationalities Joint Struggle Committee.

Chairman of Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN) Raj Kumar Lekhi said decision has been made to go for further protest if positive results were not yielded during the talks.

The NEFIN is likely to announce its protest programs today itself if the dialogue was not positive, Lekhi added.

During the meeting, indigenous leader Parshuram Tamang, Lekhi, Maoist lawmaker Suresh Ale Magar and others were present.RSS
