A camp has been set up at Badhani in India, near the Nepal-India border, to provide shelter to the people affected by the protests in Tarai districts.

The ‘Madhesi Refugee Camp’ has been operated by Lohiya Bahini Siddharthanagar, youth wing of Samajwadi Party in Dak Bangla.

“The camp has been run to provide shelter for those people who cannot stay in their houses due to the ongoing conflict in Tarai districts,” said the people running the camp.

They added that the camp was being operated with the donations offered by the district level leaders of Samajwadi Party.

The camp has 15 chairs, four tables and carpets. Operators said they manage food for around 40 people.

On the first day, 12 people from Bedamaoo village in Nepal took shelter. They, however, returned home the same day.

Inspecting the camp on Wednesday, Deputy General Secretary of Sanghiya Samajwadi Forum Nepal Abhishek Pratap Saha thanked the operators for their ‘noble cause’. Nepali security officials, however, said they have no knowledge about the camp.
