JANAKPURDHAM: Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav has name the ongoing agitation a ‘choice between freedom or death’.

Yadav said that they would not hesitate to sacrifice their lives if they did not get liberty from Khas rulers.

Saying that the agitation that began 13 days ago in the Madhes is moving ahead in the right direction, leader Yadav said that the protest was peaceful and non-violent so far.

Speaking at a press conference organised by the FSFN Dhanusa Chapter in Janakpur on Thursday, he demanded the government to immediately call back the mobilised army from the Madhes.

Yadav also demanded to implement the 22- and eight-point agreements reached with the party in the past and to stop the ongoing suppression in the peaceful protests.

He said that there is no need of talks if the demands are addressed.

Dubbing the appeal to¬†sit for talks through phone calls was merely a ‘melodrama’; Yadav said that it would not resolve the ongoing standoff.

He accused the leaders of the Nepali Congress, the CPN-UML, the UCPN-Maoist and the UDMF of having mental problems.

Yadav further said that some leaders of the four major political forces were trying to deliver the constitution for vested interests.

According to him, the agitation started after the top guns of the four major political parties signed a 16-point agreement on June 8 at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar.

Moreover, he said that the constitution delivered by the four parties would not be acceptable to his party.

He underscored that the nation has been heading towards regression due to the four parties.

Chairman Yadav warned that the agitation launched by the FSPN would not be stopped at any cost until the demands were addressed.
