KATHMANDU: Top leaders of major Madhes-based political parties have received life threat by an armed outfit operating violent activities in Tarai.

The Janatantrik Tarai Mukti Morcha has issued such treats to top Madhesi leaders. The party was recently united with a dozen of other armed outfits.

Issuing a press statement on Sunday, the party has announced ‘physical action’ against top leadership and district level leaders of seven different Madhes-based political parties from next week onwards.

Upendra Yadav, Rajendra Mahato, Bijay Gachhadar, Mahantha Thakur, Raj Kishor Yadav, Mahendra Ray Yadav and Anil Jha have been named for the ‘action’.

The outfit has also announced physcial attack against the government officials based in Madhes. Morcha’s Chairman Rajan Mukti has issued the statement stating announcing Tarai banda on August 4.

However, analysts believe that the violent activities of the Morcha would not be stringent as announced due to its poor organizational and political position in the regions.
