Video Description

Janakpur, Dec 14 (ANI): Members of Nepal's ethnic Madhesi community continued their protest, about four months after a new Constitution was adopted by the Himalayan nation which they consider being discriminative. Madhesis have been protesting against the seven-province model of the new constitution and are demanding redrawing of boundary. In Janakpur city, the Madhesi community organised a rally and protested on roads while shouting slogans. Protesters have blocked trucks from India for more than three months, leading to acute shortages of fuel and medicine in the country but Madhesis have declared to not end their protest till their demands are met. The nascent republic, wedged between China and India, has been in turmoil since September when it adopted a new Constitution. People from ethnic Madhesi groups living along the border with India, began protests saying Nepal's first republican charter did not accommodate their interests. Madhesis have called the seven-province model of the new Constitution discriminatory.
