माअोवादीको गणतन्त्रको माग जस्तै हो मधेस राज्यको माग

एक मधेस, एक प्रदेशको नारा मधेसी अान्दोलनको मुल नारा हो। त्यो माग पुरा नभएसम्म मधेसी अान्दोलन जारी रहन्छ। यो िसद्धान्तको कुरा हो। िसद्धान्तमा छलफल हुन्छ, कुनै िकिसमको compromise हुन्छ।

अप्िरल क्रान्ितले लोकतन्त्रको मुद्दामा compromise गरेन। मधेसी अान्दोलनले एक मधेस, एक प्रदेशको मुद्दामा compromise गर्नेवाला छैन। माअोवादीले गणतन्त्रको मुद्दामा compromise गरेन। त्यो अडान सही िथयो।

नेपालमा ४०% जनसंख्या रहेको मधेसी समुदाय नेपालिभत्र बस्न सक्छ भने भोिलको मधेस राज्यमा त्यहाँ ४०% जनसंख्या रहेको पहाडी समुदाय त्यस राज्यमा िकन बस्न सक्दैन?

मधेस राज्यको अवधारणाप्रित सत्तामा रहेका सात वटै पार्टी सहमित देखाउने गरी अगािड अाउनुपर्यो। त्यो कदम निलने हो भने िगिरजाको चुनवाको पिन त्यही हाल हुन्छ जुन िक राजाको नगर िनर्वाचनको भएथ्यो। िगिरजाले गर्न लागेको िनर्वाचन होइन नौटंकी हो।

िनर्वाचन ६०० सीटकालािग पिन हुन्छ कहीं नेपाल जस्तो सानोे देशमा? ३०० सीटकालािग दलीय पुर्णसमानुपाितक िनर्वाचनमा जाने।

मधेसी जनजाित अान्दोलनकालािग दलीय पुर्ण समानुपाितक िनर्वाचनको अावश्यकता
चार राज्य: कोशी, गण्डकी, कर्णाली, मधेस
नेपालमा ४०% मधेशी, मधेशमा ४०% पहाडी
