Madhes issues more created than genuine: Leader Pokharel

Bardibas, Jan 8: CPN (UML) general secretary Ishwar Pokharel has said that the Tarai issues were more created than genuine.

He added that such situation occurred as political parties could not explain the features of new constitution to the people.

Pokharel blamed some external elements for the unrest in the Tarai-Madhes as they were misleading Tarai based some leaders and they were protesting without minutely reading the features of the constitution. He asserted that the constitution has incorporated the rights of all people including marginalized and minority as well.

The UML general secretary further clarified that the constitution could be amended as per the need and relevance therefore the genuine issues related to Tarai-Madhes could be incorporated through constitution amendment process.

Leader Pokharel is scheduled to address a condolence meeting on the 13th day of the demise of party leader Ram Naresh Ray in Sarlahi today, said party central member Shree Parsad Sah. RSS
