FOREIGN PROP

- Bihari Krishna , Kathmandu

Sep 17, 2017-

Tula Narayan Shah has let the cat out of the bag when he said that the RJPN coalition for the Madhesh movement functioned “with the help and direction of a foreign power” and lately, “the RJPN has not been able to prop itself up” (‘Madhesi rights movement will continue even though RJPN has entered elections’, September 11, Page 6). Shah asserts that the movement for equal rights would continue, but he did not specify where the inequality existed in the constitution. We know that dowry extraction, bride burning, and women’s problems are rampant among the Madhesi people; these are issues the Madhesi politicians have never talked of. Therefore, to ensure equality in the Madhes, Mr Shah must depart talks of the “foreign-prop” cabal and work for issues like land redistribution, dalit and women empowerment.
