People offer prayer for well-being of Madhesi leader Rajendra Mahato
Nepal, Dec 30 (ANI): Prayers were performed for Rajendra Mahato, president of the Nepal Sadbhavana Party, who was injured in a clash with Nepali police during a protest near Biratnagar on the India-Nepal border on December 26. The agitation comes after Nepal’s political leadership assured Madhesis of accepting their political demands. Factions of Madhesi agitators continue to remain sceptical about the promise and are continuing their agitation demanding immediate changes in the constitution. Madhesis have been protesting against Nepal’s new constitution for more than four months, seeking fresh demarcation of federal boundaries and other rights. More than 50 people have died and many more were injured in Terai area after protests against the new constitution began four months ago.
There were reports that police have used `excessive force’ to quell protests in many parts.
