After Tharu Movement, Dalit, Muslim And Women's Movements

I wholeheartedly support the ongoing Tharu movement, I have from the very beginning. I go one step further to say I look forward to the Dalits, Muslims and women of the Terai similary rising up, similarly waking up to claim their due share at the table.

Neither the Pahadi parties - Maoist, UML, NC - nor the Madhesi parties have done right by the Tharus, the Dalits, the Muslims and the women.
