Jan 1, 2016-
Leaders of Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha (SLMM) and Nepali Congress (NC) took out a “Dhoti” rally in Kalaiya on Friday, marking January 1 as the Dhoti day.
Led by Morcha leader Om Prakash Shah, the participants circled the town dressed in dhoti and chanted slogans “Dhoti is identity of Madhes”.
The rally turned into a corner assembly at Bharat Chok. Speaking at the assembly, Morcha leaders said that the agitations will continue until discussions become fruitful.
Morcha leader Pramod Gupta said, “The rally was organised to establish Dhoti day to preserve the Madhesi culture of wearing dhotis.”
