A delegation of Bhutanese leaders led by RK Dorji has met former foreign minister and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum chairman Upendra Yadhav at the latter’s residence in a bid to lobby Nepalese leaders for the repatriation of refugees.
During the meet, Yadav said “India always chose to remain silent whenever the Government of Nepal sought its help in resolving the crisis and Bhutan is not sincere” He further added that Nepal alone can’t repatriate the refugees without the active role of India.
Yadav also committed the support of MJF to Bhutanese delegates. “Madhesi people are always with your struggle since they know who you are more importantly than our leaders in power,” Karma Duptho, who accompanied the delegation, told BNS quoting Yadav.
During the meeting, Bhutanese delegates also sought Yadav’s support and solidarity to establish their contact office in Kathmandu.
Meanwhile, the group of deregistered refugees has vehemently criticized the formation of new Bhutanese coalition led by Dorji. Terming it as another form of conspiracy, a press statement issued by the group further accused leaders of not being serious towards their problems.
The group further said that it is shameful to talk about lunching movement for repatriation by opening contact office in Kathmandu. It has also challenged the leaders to stay in camps and continue their politics if they really want to work for people.
