Nepal Four party accord regressive one: Upendra

The 16-Point Agreement reached by the major political parties, Nepali Congress, United Marxist Leninist, Unified Maoists and Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum-Loktantrik, claims Madhesi leader Upendra Yadav is nothing more than a power sharing deal.

The four parties had reached an agreement on July 8, 2015 to bring an end to their disputes on contentious matters of constitution drafting.

Yadav, Chairman of Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum-Nepal also claims that the agreement is both status quoist and a regressiveone. Yadav had issued a press statement, June 9, 2015 wherein it is state , “It is totally unconstitutional to allow a federal commission to demarcate the provinces,” he says and adds, “The agreement reached by the parties is against clause 138 of the interim constitution.”

Rather than institutionalizing rights of Madhesi, Women, Dalit, Janajatis, marginalized groups and workers, the leaders of the four parties are focused on guaranteeing their share in the state structure, also alleged Yadav.
