New Delhi, Jan 08 (ANI): Senior Madhesi leader Rajendra Mahato has said the people of Madhesh region have been deprived of their rights. Mahato was flown to New Delhi on January 01 after being injured in a clash between cadres of the Madhesi Morcha and police personnel at the Biratnagar-Jogbani border on December 26. Mahato said if Madhesis did not get their due rights, agitation can turn violent and the demand for independent nation can intensify. Madhesis, largely of Indian-origin, are agitating over the new constitution demanding more representation. They are also protesting the division of their ancestral homeland under the seven-province structure and have led an ongoing blockade of key border trade points with India. Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will be visiting India early February. However, Mahato said before his visit to India Oli should ensure peace in his homeland. Mahato added that rights of Madhesis have been snatched by the Nepali government. He further added that entire world including India should put pressure on Nepal to solve the ongoing Terai unrest.
