Yadav puts condition for election; Muslim leaders blame Madhesh based parties for using them


KATHMANDU: Chairperson of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum Upendra Yadav has said that conduction of Constituent Assembly election cannot be ensured by merely declaring its date.

Speaking at a program in the Capital Yadav claimed that an environment for election was not created in the country. He also claimed that the issue of new electoral constituencies should be settled to ensure election.

“Why should we let the election happen if it does not allocates 51 percent of seat in Madhes region on the basis of population,” he questioned. Yadav also demanded that Chief of Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi resign from the Chief Justice post to show respect towards democracy.

He also ruled out the possibility of forming alliance or unifying with the opportunist parties and added that they can however have alliance with Madhesh based parties to ensure rights of Madheshi people.

Meanwhile representatives of Muslim community have accused the Madhes-based parties of using them merely as vote banks and not working for their cause.

Chairman of Islami Sangh Nepal, Nazarool Hasan Falahi, alleged that the Madhes-based parties were using the Muslims as a vote bank just as the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML did in the previous elections. Similarly, General Secretary of MPRF-Republican, Eqbal Ahmed Shah, vented his ire against the political parties that promised to meet their demands, but failed to keep them.

“The Madhesi parties proved to be no exception. They could secure the post of deputy prime minister by stepping on the bodies of 54 martyrs. But they could not do anything substantive to meet our demands,” he said. “We can no longer afford to be just a vote bank for these cunning politicians.” Leaders of the the Madhesi-based parties, however, claim that they are seriously concerned about the issues raised by the Muslims.

Political Analyst CK Lal claimed that none of the Madhes-based parties were serious towards cause of the Muslims. “I don´t see any sign of that seriousness,” said Lal, adding, “Presence of some Muslim leaders at the top is just symbolic.” “Political parties should address the concerns raised by the Muslims by incorporating their agendas in their political documents,” he said.
