Protests to end once past pacts implemented, says Yadav

BHAIRAHAWA: Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal (FSF-N) Chairman Upendra Yadav has said that the ongoing Madhes protest would end, once the government implements the agreement it had with the Madhesi parties.

Yadav, who visited Rupandehi to take part in the agitation called by United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF), said that the government should not turn sour the good relation with India, holding the Madhesi parties responsible for the hostility.

The government should emphasise in making relation with India closer, he added. He denied that the Madhesis were backed up by India.

In a press conference at the residence of Wassi Uddin Khan, a FSF-N leader, Yadav urged the government to fulfill the appropriate demands of Madhesi Communities.

The leader added that they had not discussed within their party or the Front regarding whether they would join the new government.
