Minority community in Nepal holds rally at Birgunj-Raxaul border
Birgunj, Jan 22 (ANI): In Birgunj, members of the Telisamaj minority community held a massive protest at the Raxual border. Raising slogans against the government, the protestors demanded an immediate action plan to address their issues. Around 1,000 protesters took out a procession rally, some on motorbikes and bicycles, while others marched to the Birgunj-Raxual border. Since the adoption of the new constitution last year, Nepal has been witnessing widespread protests by the people of the Southern Terai region. Inconclusive talks between the government and the Madheshi leaders who are demanding adequate representation in policy making and redrawing of boundaries of new districts have led to frequent clashes between people of the Terai region and security forces.
