Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bijay Kumar Gachhadar said that the new constitution would only become a plain paper if it does not address the demands of Madhes. He warned that such sheet of paper would be torn by Madhesi people if it does not ensure their right.
Speaking at a cadres’ training session in Banepa of Kavre district today, Gachhadar said, “Constitution cannot be drafted without the addressing the demands of Madhes. If drafted, it will only be a sheet of plain paper for the Madhesi people and furthermore it would be torn,” he added.
Gachhadar, also the Chairman of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Loktantrik), said that the process of peace and constitution drafting would not be completed without the agreement of Madhesi people. He also maintained that the completion of peace process and statute drafting was impossible without the consensus among the major political parties.
