Rajbiraj, 25 May : Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum Nepal (SSFN) Chairman Upendra Yadav has said federalism is in crisis and accused the federal government of trying to weaken the federalism.
Speaking at a programme organised in Rajbiraj of Saptari, he said federalism will not be strong until the local level is not incorporated in province level.
Leader Yadav accused the central government of not being serious towards developing Province 2.
Saying that the political struggle has not come to an end, he said though the government entered into federalism through a long struggle, federalism is yet to be institutionalised.
“Discrimination is still persisted in government sectors,” Yadav said. “Madhesis are being discriminated while doing political appointment. There is no place of Madhesis in governance and administration,” he added.
Yadav has accused the state of being insusceptible to the development of Madhes.
He said the Chure degradation has increased the risks of desertification and flooding.
He lambasted the government for its apathy to address the serious problem of Chure hills.
Pointing out the need that the central government should pay attention towards conserving Chure Hills and controlling rivers, he said the country would take a big toll if the Madhe turned to a desert.
