    Utterly false and misleading

    What the article does is discard the ethnic movement of the madhesi people (terai people) who have been marginalised in through out history. The dominant thinking is India blocked the movement of goods in to Nepal, but ehich is not true, it was the people who led a strike and prevented the flow of goods. By blaming external forces it can look away from the real issues. Also during riots and strikes transport companies are reluctant to send their vehicles in those areas since insurances do not cover if any mishaps occur.

    A reputed journal publishing such baseless articles provides fuel to the fire and discards the historical domination of the Terai people.
