Madhesh: Compensation for the Deceased of a Violent Movement

In the decades following the Madhesh movement, the people of the Madhesh region continue to demand the Nepalese government investigate the deaths incurred. On 23 November 2017, for the first time in 10 years, the government showed a sign of cooperation as it announced that it would provide compensation to families of the deceased through educational and employment stipends. Still, as the Nepal government has yet to set any intention to investigate the deaths of this revolution, this announcement in itself remains insufficient in addressing the complaints of the Madhesh minority.

GAUSHALA, Nov 23: Member of presidium of Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN), Rajendra Mahato has announced that Madhesh government will provide Rs 5 million to the families of those killed during the Madhes revolution.

Speaking at a program organized in Jaleshwar on Thursday to unveil the manifesto of RJPN, leader Mahato has reiterated the compensation of Rs 5 million to the victims' families, which was already announced during the revolution.

Leader Mahato reassured that the children of the families will be provided free education and one of the members will get government employment.

Leader Mahato, RJPN candidate of Dhanusha-3, appealed to the locals to vote in favor of the party during the federal parliament and provincial elections to fulfill the dreams of martyrs and to form Madhes government in the region.  

Speaking at the program, another member of the presidium, Mahantha Thakur appealed to the locals to vote RJPN to end discrimination and amend the constitution.
