Kathmandu, April 21:

Indigenous and Janajati students have said that they may joint stir if the parties include their demands. Organising a press conference here today, Nepal Indigenous and Janajati Students Federation has said that no party has raised their problems as they were widely used for political gains in the past. "Now, we will join the movement only if the parties raise our demands," said Luisang Waiba Tam-ang, president of the federation. Giving an example of Newars in Kathmandu, Jhakendra Gharti Magar, a student leader said that without the involvement of indigenous communities no movement can be successful.
