Nepal, Feb 28 (ANI): Five-month long Madeshi agitation in the Southern Terai region in Nepal did not yield any positive results as they were unable to bring the Nepal government to the negotiating table to address their concerns in the newly adopted constitution. In a bid to decide their future course of action, leaders of the Sanyukth Loktantrik Madheshi Morcha recently held a meeting. The party leaders said that more than 25 demands of Madheshis, mentioned in the charter, were turned down by the Nepal government. The people in southern Terai region of Nepal protested for five months against the Nepal’s newly adopted constitution that was promulgated in September last year. The Madheshis felt they had been denied their basic rights. The Madheshis demands include redrawing of the boundaries of the provinces in Terai region, fixing of electoral constituencies on the basis of population and proportional representation.
