2.The announcement to end the border blockade comes ahead of Prime Minister KP Oli’s trip to India on February 19, the first overseas visit of the new Nepalese premier.

3.The UDMF has announced only three protest programmes including a torch rally, a lathi rally and a people’s vote collection campaign in district headquarters.

4.Nepal’s Madhesi community, largely of Indian origin, are opposed to the new constitution that divides their ancestral homeland under the seven-province structure and have led an ongoing blockade of key border trade points with India.
