Madhesis take to streets of Banke
Wednesday, August 02,2006

NEPALGUNJ: People from the Madhesi community today took to the streets seeking to resolve the citizenship row before going for an election to constituent assembly.
They rallied in the thoroughfares of Nepalgunj and forwarded 11-point demands, including solution to the citizenship certificate problem through interim statute, to the District Administration Office, Banke.
“It is necessary to solve citizenship problem of the Madhesi community through the interim statute to ensure proportionate representation of all castes, classes, religions, communities and nationalities in the constituent assembly,” chairman of Madhesi Civil Rights Forum, Banke Buddhi Sagar Lekhak, said, adding that a federal state should be established through the constituent assembly.
He said appropriate participation of all castes and classes must be ensured in the ruling system through the constituent assembly. The Madhesi community also submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister through Chief District Officer today.
The memorandum points out the discrimination meted out while distribution of land to the squatters and also the differences in land ownership between hilly and Terai people. The memorandum urges the government to provide land to the landless, Madhesi community, squatters and freed Kamaiyas. The memorandum also seeks establishment of a separate Madhesi Battalion in Nepali Army.
