KATHMANDU: Sharat Singh Bhandari, along with his supporters who broke away with Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Democratic, is scheduled to organise a national political conference today.
Over 2,500 cadres from 27 districts are expected to attend the national political conference in Kathmandu where the name, flag and statute of the party would be finalised.
The two-day gathering is also anticipated to discuss current political problems, federalism and socio-economic agendas that the new party might pursue in the days ahead.
Bhandari, who was sacked by MJF-D on June 5 for working against the party’s interests, has alleged MJF-D Chairman Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar for sidelining the Madhesi issues despite holding two big ministerial portfolios—Home and Defence.
According to Bhandari, his party will focus on the socio-economic integration of marginalised communities including Madhesis, Dalits and indigenous nationalities.
