RAJBIRAJ: Tarai Madhes Democratic Party central Deputy Secretary General Jitendra Sonal on Wednesday warned that they would break ties with Kathmandu if the past agreements with major parties and the state were not implemented soon.

Speaking at a press meet organised at the party office in Rajbiraj, Sonal accused the government of being apathetic towards implementing agreements with Madhes-centric parties. “We will be compelled to segregate from the capital if the government goes ahead as per the 16-point deal among the four major forces and ignores the sentiments of the Madhes and its people,” he warned. Sonal also argued that they would not remain quiet if the government continues neglecting past agreements with their party.

He said the recent 16-point agreement of the major forces was an anti-Madhes move. “Hence, we call everyone for their support to protest against the deal,” he said, adding that his party would never tolerate exploitation and injustice.

He also warned of boycotting the CA, if the four forces didn’t rectify their behaviour. He demanded immediate implementation of the Supreme Court’s recent directive regarding the 16-point agreement.

CPN-UML Chairperson KP Sharma Oli’s comment about the apex court’s verdict and the president’s appeal was hollow, said Sonal. “Nobody is above rule of the law. Hence, everybody must abide by the state code. He said they were busy this week as they were going to conduct interaction with leaders of Madhes districts. “We are preparing for a decisive agitation,” claimed Sonal.
