Mahendranagar (Dhanusha), Sept 20: The Nepali Congress, CPN (UML), UCPN (Maoist) and Rastriya Prajatantra Party in Dhanusha district are making preparations to welcome the new constitution at Janakpur, challenging the ongoing agitation launched by the Madhesi Front.
The parties are scheduled to organise interaction programmes welcoming the new constitution against protest programmes called by agitating parties time and again.
CPN (UML) Dhanusha Chairman Raj Kishor Yadav said that they would organise candle light vigil today and interaction programme on Sept 21 in order to follow central direction. Yadav, however, said that the programme could be changed as per the situation.
Whereas, the United Democratic Madhesi Front has urged to carry out black out one hour from 7:00 pm protesting the promulgation of the new constitution.
The UDMF has called to protest by keeping black flag at every place to make the agitation stronger, saying the new constitution is going to be promulgated without ensuring rights of Madhesis.
Intellectuals have argued that it was sad to protest the new constitution as it is going to be promulgated after the long-wait of the Nepali people.
Youths associated to UDMF demonstrated this morning by tying black bands, and carrying black flags at public places including Balmiki chowk, Mithileshwor and Bateshwor. RSS
