Lift border blockade: Nepal

Bhaktapur, October 10

CPN-UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal today said that the unofficial blockade imposed by India on Nepal is against international laws and hence should be lifted immediately.

Inaugurating the first convention of the CPN-UML Nagarkot town committee today, leader Nepal said that it was wrong on the part of India to impose border blockade just because it is not satisfied with the new constitution. He also said that India should not interfere in the internal affairs of our country.

He also stressed on holding discussion between leaders of India and Nepal to resolve the existing problem. The former prime minister said that an arrangement has been made in the new constitution to address the demands of Madhesis, Tharus, Muslims, women and indigenous communities by forming separate commissions.
