from nepal news:The unrest in eastern Terai district due to the protests of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF) continued on Thursday as well.
The local administrations in Lahan and Janakpur imposed day time curfew in the districts on Thursday.
The local administration clamped curfew in Lahan bazaar from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm today. The local administration imposed 8 hour long curfew on Wednesday, but the curfew hour was extended on Thursday as demonstrations were held after the curfew was lifted on Wednesday.
The Forum has demanded that the interim constitution must be changed to include provisions such as ethnic and regional autonomy with the right to self-determination as well as elections to Constituent Assembly (CA) based on proportional representation system based on ethnic population.
The Forum also ruled out talks with the government saying the government called them for talks without doing proper homework to resolve their demands.
Similarly, the local administration imposed curfew from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm in Janakpur district on Thursday.
However, reports from these districts said protestors are continuing demonstrations in the districts defying the curfew orders.
Similarly, terai districts of Udaypur, Saptari and Biratnagar remained shut on Thursday due to the bandh called by the Forum.
So far, five people have been killed and dozens injured in the Terai unrest.
