Amid series of splits, Nepal’s Madhesi parties now have begun discussing for the formation of one single party
Merging all parties into one is not impossible in Madhesh. This is what Vice Chairman Hridayesh Tripathi of Tarai Madhesh Loktantrik Party (TMLP) claimed while addressing an exclusive Madhesi gathering in Kathmandu, August 5, 2012.
Yet he said that unless all parties representing the Madhesi population unite to give shape to one single party, Madhesi problems will not be resolved, he also claimed.
Our top leadership has held several rounds to discussions to create one party representing entire Tarai plains, he claimed and added, the movement has now reached to the second and third ranking party leadership.
The TMLP vice chairman also claimed, “Our party is ready to make any sacrifice to achieve the noble cause”.
Anil Kumar Jha of Sanghiya Sadvawana Party addressing the gathering opined that favorable atmosphere must be created first before forcefully forwarding the single entity agenda forward.
General Secretary of Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum (Ganatantrik) Atma Ram Sah said, “It is our responsibility to uncover reason behind flurry of splits in the Madhesi parties.”
“Unless we shun our petty personal interests unity is impossible”, he also said.
Why not to give it a try?
