RAJBIRAJ: A clash has erupted between cadres of United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) and Nepali Congress (NC) during the NC municipal convention in Rajbiraj of Saptari district on Monday.

The cadres of UDMF had obstructed the convention from being held at the premises of Aniruddhawati Secondary School in the district headquarters.

A UDMF cadre was injured while the NC youth cadres tried to remove them from the venue to continue the convention.

The UDMF cadres, however, continued sloganeering outside the school gate in their bid to stop the poll.
