“If anyone points finger against nationality of Madhesis or Madhesi leaders, we will chop their fingers off,” said Mahato while addressing a program at Haripur of Sunsari district.
He said that Madhesis are not in favor of disintegrating the country under any circumstances. “It is for the sake of nationality that Madhesis have been demanding the state to provide citizenship by descent to the children of those who have acquired citizenship by birth,” stated Mahato, adding, “Madhesis are very patriotic.”
He blamed “discriminatory treatment” of the state for sowing rebellious in the minds of Madhesis. In another context, Mahato claimed that peace process and constitution drafting would concluded on time.
“The country will plunge into serious crisis if peace and constitution writing is not concluded by May 27,” Mahato said.
