UDMP to take part in local polls after constitution amendment: Thakur


Saptari, 26 March – The Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party (TMLP) Chair Mahantha Thakur has said that the Madhes-centric political parties will take part in the local polls only when the constitution amendment bill was passed with revision in the delineation of the provinces.

At a press meet here today, Thakur said that they could not participate in the polls without change in the provincial border, as it was their bottom line. He added that there was no alternative to go for protest if their demands were not addressed.

In another note, Thakur urged the government to take action against those involved in the killing of protesters in Sapatri in course of CPN (UML)’s Mechi-Mahakali Campaign adding that they were innocent. RSS
