Kathmandu : United Democratic Madhesi Front leaders met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and urged him to mount pressure on New Delhi to ask Kathmandu to address the demands of the Madhes movement.
Nitish had come to attend the inaugural ceremony of the 13th convention of the Nepali Congress, reports The Himalayan Times.
Sadbhawana Party’s Rajendra Mahato told the Bihar Chief Minister that the Madhesis were agitating against the new Constitution because the major parties did not honour the agreements that the government had signed with the Madhesi forces and snatched away marginalised communities’ rights that the Interim Constitution had ensured.
Mahato said Nitish assured the UDMF leaders that he would take their message positively to the Government of India.
Mahato further said the UDMF leaders also urged the Bihar Chief Minister to play his role in establishing direct flights and bus services between the towns in Nepal and Patna. (ANI)
