Goodwill campaign concludes

Kathmandu, Feb 8: A Goodwill Campaign spearheaded to promote mutual harmony and goodwill across various districts in Terai has come to an end.

The Campaignunder the theme ‘Dialogue and Cooperation for building Peace and Nation-Building-2072 ‘, jointly launched by Nepal Jaycees (JC) and Collective Campaign for Peace (COCAP), was launched from February 3.
After taking round in Dhangadi, Nepalgunj, Butwal, Birgunj, Janakpur, Lahan, Rajbiraj and Biratnagar, the Campaign arrived capital city today.
During the campaign, various consultations were held with agitating Madheshi leaders, concerned government authorities, leaders from the major opposition party Nepali Congress and civic society’s leaders in nine places across Terai in an attempt to seek solution to the Terai unrest, said COCAP President Rem Bahadur Bishwokarma.
Some Madhesh-centric political parties have been agitating in various districts across the southern plains over five months, stating that the new constitution did not reflect their interest.
According to Bishwokarma, Madheshi communities confided with the campaigners that waging agitation in protest of new constitution was not their choice but their compulsion.
Similarly, Jaycees President Jagat Pokharel shared the Campaign aimed to breach the growing distance between the Terai and Mountain.
As the Campaign has come to an end, the campaigners are to pile pressures on the political leaders for implementing the commitments on common issues made by the stakeholders during the Campaign.
