One Madhes tops MJF agenda: Yadav

Biratnagar, December 18:

Minister for Foreign Affairs and president of the Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum Upendra Yadav has said his party would not drop the slogan of ‘One Madhes, One Pradesh’ just because other parties did not endorse it.

Talking to media persons here today, Yadav made it clear that it is in fact his party’s main agenda. He said, “So many people have sacrificed their lives to see their dream of One Madhes come true. So many others crave for it.” The party’s parliamentary leader and Minister for Physical Planning and Works Bijay Kumar Gachhadar had said he was against One Madhes.

When asked about the MJF leaders’ demand to withdraw from the government, he said it was possible if MJF’s demands were not met.
