Janakpurdham, October 18

Federal Socialist Forum Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav has termed the KP Oli-led government anti-national.

Speaking at a press meet organised in Janakpurdham, Yadav said, “Prime Minister Oli is anti-nationalist.”Neither can Oli’s proverbs govern the country nor can his pleas with the neighbour solve an internal problem”, Yadav added.

Stating that demarcation of provinces was the root cause of their current agitation, Yadav made it clear that they would not withdraw their protests unless the government addresses their concerns.

On a different note, Yadav accused PM Oli’s of exposing his true character by using the apolitical phrases in the letter sent to the UDMF for talks. Yadav also suggested to the government to implement the 22-point and eight-point agreements reached with the Madhesi parties in the past.

Yadav argued that the United Democratic Madheshi Front’s had participated in the prime ministerial election to protest against the government from both parliament and the streets.

“The agitation will not come to an end unless our demands are met,” said Yadav. He also said that the front would intensify its protests after Dashain.
