Nepal Crisis – Madeshis Andolan

Nepal, The Himalayan country is now a days going through a crisis. All TV channels, websites are showing protests in Nepal. We all know Nepal as peace loving country.  But what is going in Nepal nowadays?

Well, Nepal had a region which was not populated, Tarai region. It was covered by forest. Tarai region lies near to India. Many people from UP and Bihar moved to Tarai in Nepal decades ago. Yeah that movement was supported by Nepal for economical growth of Tarai. These peoples are called as “Madeshis”. Now Nepal recently adopted new constitution. Madeshis want a province in Nepal and it is currently not accepted by Nepalese constitution. Madeshis currently don’t have citizenship of Nepal and their political representation is negligible.
