Security strategy to finish Madhes, claims Yadav

BANKE: Chairman of Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum (MJF) Upendra Yadav today blamed the government for terrorising Tarai in the name of special security strategy.

Speaking at a press conference organised by the Banke chapter of Madhesi Journalists Society here, he said, “The strategy has been implemented without forging consensus.”

“The suppressive act of the government will not maintain law and order; instead, it’ll deteriorate the security situation,” he said, fearing that the government’s strategy would kill innocent people in the Tarai.

He also took potshot on the government saying that the strategy was launched with the view to finish Madhes. “We don’t need the any strategy that kills people. It should be scrapped at the earliest.”

“Hundreds of youths are being recruited in the police force unnecessarily to suppress the Madhes,” he charged. “As Nepali Congress and CPN-UML have lost people’s support in the eastern Tarai, they caused split in MJF to improve their status.”

Underscoring the need of forming national government to prevent civil war in the nation, he said, “Otherwise, instability might threat the existence of the country and her people.”
