KATHMANDU, May 13: Broader Madhesi Front (BMF), an alliance of cross-party Madhesi lawmakers, has formed three separate subcommittees in a bid to strengthen their protests.
The alliance will organize torch rallies across all Tarai districts on May 14 and 17.
Similarly, it has called for a shutdown on May 15, 18 and 19. A meeting of BMF held at Singha Durbar on Sunday evening formed a seven-member central mass mobilization sub-committee headed by Chairman of Madhesi People´s Rights Forum (MPRF) Upendra Yadav.
MPRF-D lawmaker Pramod Gupta said the subcommittee will exert pressure on parliament to address Madhesi issues.
He said that the alliance has already formed districts-level mass mobilization sub-committees across the Tarai.
