No relevance of talks with govt: Yadav

BIRGUNJ: Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal (FSF-N) Chairman Upendra Yadav said that there was no relevance of holding talks with the government and accused the government of staging drama in the name of talks.

Speaking at a press conference here in Birgunj on Tuesday, Yadav said the new forms of protest would be Kathmandu-centric and added that the ongoing protest would not be halted until the demands were addressed.

According to him, the government would face a huge loss if it ignored the demands raised by the United Democratic Madhesi-Front (UDMF).

Accusing the KP Sharma Oli-led government of blackmailing the neighbouring and other countries, Yadav said the donors have been reduced financial support to Nepal of late.

“People are still not getting petroleum products easily. This indicates that the KP Sharma Oli-led government itself is indulging in corruption and black-marketing,” Yadav said.

He appealed all to make the 'decisive agitation', which would start on May 14, successful.
