BARDIBAS (Mahottari), Aug 27: The Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) Chairman Upendra Yadav on Saturday clarified that the issue of amending the constitution is solely Nepal's internal affair.

Addressing an interaction organized by the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) as part of a program preannounced by the Federal Alliance comprising protesting Madhes-based political parties and Janajatis at Bardibas of Mahottari, he said the Nepali people themselves decide on constitution amendment or rewriting or issues related to it.

He also said that the UDMF, an alliance of all Madhes-based political parties formed to press the government to address their demands, has been launching the protest with the concept that a common view on the constitution should be created and Nepali people themselves should resolve weaknesses in the constitution, if any.

Yadav, also coordinator of the Alliance, claimed that their protest was to end all types of 'discrimination' against Madhesi people and Janajatis.

He also stressed the need for filing the proposal to amend the constitution in Parliament in order to end the issue of demarcation of provinces. RSS
