The United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) has been protesting for more than three months in Tarai-Madhes region demanding amendments in the new Constitution including the issue of provincial boundaries.

Subsequently, India imposed the unofficial border blockade after the promulgation of the Constitution on September 20.

While Nepal has been accusing India of imposing an unofficial border blockade, India has been stating that the problems existed due to security problems on the Nepali side.
