The Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha (SLMM) has decided to block all the entry points to Nepal as part of the fresh bid intensify their agitation.
A meeting of the SLMM convened in Rajbiraj of Saptari district on Wednesday took the decision to step up their agitation at a time when the big three political parties in the Capital have been trying to forge consensus with the agitating Madhes-based parties.
Four Madhesi parties affiliated to SLMM have divided responsibility among themselves to make effective the blockade at all India entry points into Nepal.
Emerging from the meeting Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party Chairman Mahanta Thakur said their agitation programmes will be targeted to impose blockade to the Capital city. “As Kathmandu did not listen to us, now our agitation will put pressure on Kathmadu,” said leader Thakur. Saying that the Madhesi parties are not against talks, Thakur accused the government of not creating an environment conducive for dialogue.
The SLMM has given the responsibility of blocking Sunauli entry point in the West to Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party, while Sadbhawana Party has been charged with the responsibility to block the Raxaul entry point connected to Birgunj of Nepal.
Likewise, Sanghiya Samawadi Forum has taken the reponsibility to block Jogbani entry point connected with Biratnagar of Nepal, and Tarai Madhes Sadbhawana Party has taken the responsibility to block the eastern border.
The alliance of disgruntled Madhesi parties has decided to continue the strikes in the Tarai region.
