    Government should be able to address the problems and the demand of our region. It is not fair for us . Our people are fighting here and Government is killing our people. This is discrimination for people living in Madhesi Region. Though i am Pahadi, i feel pain when i have to see in newspaper; my neighborhood shot dead by police.My birthplace and my people being flame in violence and injustice. Thought they have bring Samidhan, why my people voices and right are not heard. If madhesh is in Nepal. Their problem and trouble should be addressed properly. Each and every people have equal rights. Why Madhes is Least developed than hilly region? Why Madhesi is discriminated always in their rights. If these fucking leaders cannot satisfy our people
    , they should declared Madesh is not of Nepal.

    “हामी मधेसीको कति अधिकार हनन् भएको छ???

    यही हो अधिकार हनन् भएको ???
    संबिधान मा अरुलाई चाहि के अधिकार दिएको छ ?
    के अधिकार दिएको छ भनेर लेखेको छ ?

    सोच्ने बेला आयको छ नेपालि हामी रहुला कहाँ नेपाल नै नरहे??

    सक्छौ भने अरु जसरि नै गरेर देखाउ नत्र अरुको पछी नलाग हावा को ताल मा नबोल्नु नै राम्रो हो ??
    देश मा राष्ट्रपति मदेशी छ हिजो पहाडे भनौदा ले नै बनाएको हो उप राष्ट्रपति मदेशी छ पनि मदेशी नै त्यो पनि पहाडे भनौदा ले बनाएको के
    लाग्छ ? ?
    कुरा रहयो नगरिक्ताको अब जो पायो तेही लाई नगरिक्ता दिने ?? कुन देश म छ त्यस्तो कनुन जस्लाई पायो तेस्लाई नगरिक्ता दिने ?
    कुरा रहयो भरत र मदेशी नेता को
    भारतले नेपाली मदेशी को माया कैले पनि गरेको छैन र गर्ने वाला पनि छैन माया गर्ने भए कोशी फुटेर तेत्रो जनताको बेहालत हुने थिएन ???
    भरतले अझै पनि कति ठाउँमा बाध बनाउने काम जारी छ एत्रो हुँदा पनि मदेशी नेता किन चुप छन अहिले सम्म?? यदि मदेशी नेता मदेशी जनताको हित चाहान्छन भने किन बोल्न सक्दैनन?? यो समस्या बाट पहाडे जनता होइन मदेशी जनता लाई असर परेको छ ……
    के उपेन्द्र यदब, महान्त ठाकुर, राजेन्द्र महतो मदेशी नेता होइन्नन ? ? ? के इनिहरु मन्त्री भएको थिएनन ? ?
    इनिहरु ले मदेशी जनताको लागि के गरेको छन आज सम्म ?? मदेशी जनता को लागि कैले लडेको छन ?
    अहिले हुँदै गरेको आन्दोलन ले नेपालको मदेशी जनता लाई मरेर ईन्डिया बाट आएको लाई फाईदा पुग्छ भनेर बुज्नु जरुरी छ…
    मदेशी लाई कहाँ रोकेको छ ? कुन पोस्ट म मदेशी छैन ? एक पटक बुज्नु पर्ने कुरा यहाँ छ
    हिमाल को / पहाड्को एउटा पहाडे:- एउटा सिटामोल खान नपाएर मरेको छ यो कुरा मदेशी जनता ले बुज्नु जरुरी छ
    ए उटा बहुन खाडी म दुःख गरेर परिवार पलेको छ ? के सबै बहुन लाई सुख्ख छ नेपाल मा ? ?
    एउटा लिम्बुको छोरो दुःख गरेर लण्डनमा अहिले जमिनदार छ उस्को जग्गा एउटा बहुन ले कमाएको छ कति दुःख गर्छ यो कस्ले बुजेको छ ? ?
    यस्को मत्लब यो हो कि यहाँ नेता बर्ग लाई मात्र हेरेर कुरा गरिन्छ
    के उपेन्द्र यदब महान्त ठाकुर राजेन्द्र महतो को सम्पत्ति कति छ ? कसैलाई थाहा छ ?
    आज सम्म एउटा गरीब मदेशी जनता लाई बिमार हुँदा उपचार गर्न सहयोग गरेको छन ?
    धनी राम थारु सडक बिभागको एउटा इन्जीनियरले के अधिकार को कुरा गरेको ?
    उस्लाई त्यो पोस्ट मा जागिर खान कसैले रोकेको थियो र ?
    मेरो बिचार मा त्यो मान्छे लाई जागिर बाट निकालेर अर्को एउटा गरीब थारुको छोरा लाई दिनु उचित हुन्छ….
    मदेशमा बिभेद सबैभन्दा धेरै मदेशी बाट भएको छ
    सानो जात र ठुलो जात
    दाईजो प्रथा, दाईजो न ल्याएको नुहुमा कुट-पिट अनि हत्या
    लभ गरेको नुहुमा कुट-पिट अनि हत्या
    यो कुराको अनत्य हुनु जरुरी छ
    मदेश का जनता सिदा छन त्यही कारण नेताले फाईदा लिइ राखेको छन आसा छ सम्पूर्ण मदेशका नेपाली जनताले यो कुरा बुजेर आफ्नो आफन्तहरु लाई, साथी भाई र चिने जनेको हरु लाई यो हल्लाको पछाडि नलागि आफु र आफ्नो परिवार लाई, आफ्नो आफन्तहरु लाई, साथी भाई र चिने जनेको हरु लाई सुरकक्षीत राख्नु हुन अनुरोध गर्दछु अमुल्य जीवन अरुको फाईदाको लागि खेर नफालौ र सम्पूर्ण सिकक्षित मदेशको जनताले आफ्नो जिमेवारी सम्जी आफ्नो परिवार लाई, आफ्नो आफन्तहरु लाई, साथी भाई र चिने जनेको हरु लाई सम्जाउनु हुने छ भन्ने आस लिएको छु
    अरुको फाईदाको लागि आफ्नो परिवार नगुमाउ यो नै ठुलो धर्मा धर्म हो…. गोली बोली र प्राण कैले पनि फर्कदैन…. बाँच्न पउने अधिकार सबैको छ…. आफु पनि बचउ र अरु लाई पनि बचाउ…..
    यसको एउटै निस्कर्स हो नेताको पछी नलागौ सबै मदेशी गरीब छैनन, सबै पहाडे धनी छैनन… नेता बर्ग लाई मात्र हेरेर कुरा नगरौ
    मदेशीजनता लाई मदेशी नेता ले हेरेको छैन…पहाडे जनता लाई पहाडे नेताले हेरेको छैन…. अब जनता एक जुट हुनु जरुरी छ भ्रस्टचार को बिरुद लड्नु पर्छ”….- See more at: http://www.onlinekhabar.com/2015/09/331330/#sthash.WBL1O5Bb.dpuf

  • yagya raj adhikari

    Does the Madeshis of Nepal want to stay in the southern Boarder only??? We people of Hills are in every corner of this country. But Madeshis are not.

    • amit karna

      Brother …. U still don’t get it……. Read some more article in this site……. Be a sympathetic to all Nepali…. Don’t come as a representative of only your community …….

  • yagya raj adhikari

    wake up madeshis . What type of Leader are you following. All Nepali madeshis should also think , that the Biharis should not get citizenship of Nepal.

    • namah

      Nepalis (especially of pahadi origin) should not get citizenship of any nation, except Nepal. All should be kicked out of US/UK/Australia. In fact ban all pahadis from migrating from kathmandu to any place other than thankot! ROFL

  • Dilip K. Mehta

    I like & appreciate this webpage. Madheshi youth is playing vital role in raising the current issues of Madhesh internationally. I hope that Madheshi youth will bring the genuine issue of Madhesh.
