Prachanda on Madhesi

August 31, 2006 at 11:07 am 2 comments

On One Occassion in an interview, Prachanda has expressed following view about madhesi.

Date: 11 Aug 2006 Q:Madhesi question is considered to be a very sensitive and important one in Nepalese struggle. How is the Party looking at this issue?

A:Our Party has been taking the question of Madhes and Madhesi as one of strategic importance for the Nepalese struggle.

It is necessary to ensure the participation of the Madhesi people in al1 aspects of life of the nation because of geographical accessibility, economic progress and linguistic development and also to rapidly take the country forward in the path of progress together with a strong national unity. But the feudal central power based on hill high-caste chauvinism never looked upon the Madhesi people as citizens.

The feudal state kept on giving continuance to the process of oppression, exploitation, psychological assault and sectarianism through various conspiracies and deceptions. The feudal state has not been able to cater to the rights and sentiments of Madhes and Madhesi people and this is responsible for Nepal lagging behind in economic development.

It is keeping in mind this historic reality, that our Party has been addressing the issue of Madhes as a central one since even before the initiation of People’s War. Amongst the various nationality fronts, our Party held the national conference of Madhesi Front first and this was convened on behalf of the Headquarters itself. Recently the Party has passed a concrete resolution to study the Madhesi question from a greater height and to debate, discuss and develop leaders as well to take the revolutionary movement in Madhes to a new height.
