Rautahat, October 1
Vehicular movement through the Gaur-Bairganiya entry point in Rautahat remained closed for the eighth consecutive day today due to the stir launched jointly by United Democratic Madhesi Front and National Muslim Alliance.
According to the central level decision of the front, its leaders and cadres have been holding 24-hour sit-in at a bridge on the Nepal-India border since Monday.
No vehicle entered Nepal through the point as the bandh and sit-in enters the eighth day and the relay-hunger strike entered its fourth day today.
Today, Tarai Madhes Sadbhawana Party Chairperson Mahendra Raya Yadav reached the site to encourage agitators.
With Yadav participating in the strike, a religious organisation based in Bairganiya served the agitators fruits and a light beverage.
Speaking at the site, Yadav dwelt on the changed form of the agitation and informed the non-cooperation agitation would be launched from tomorrow.
“As the government has not showed any interest in implementing the past agreement, there is no question of holding talks with the government again,” he argued.
Meanwhile, the chhoti customs point of Aurraiya too has closed due to the agitation under the coordination of the front. The front leaders and cadres have been holding a sit-in in front of Manamohan Dwar for the past seven days here.
