Thousands of people formed a long human chain as part of the ongoing Madhes agitation in Saptari district on Thursday. Organizers claim that it was 45-km long.
The human chain demonstration was organised on the 48th day of strike in Madhes in line with the decision of agitating SLMM to form a chain starting from Jhapa to Kanchanpur along the postal highway.
The chain started at Koshi Barrage from eastern side of Saptari along the 47 km route ending at Balan River on the western side. People from different communities and villages participated enthusiastically to form the chain which took shape at around 1 pm on Thursday.
According to the decision, the chain was also formed in other districts along the postal highway. The organisers claimed it to be the longest human chain demonstrated in the world.
