United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) leaders said, “Considering the current crisis⚠ facing the nation and the public necessity and aspirations, the ongoing protest programmes of general strike, border blockade🚫, government office shutdown have been called off for now.” He added, “The agitation😠 will continue till our demands are addressed.” Nepal's Indian origin Madhesi community, are opposed❌ to the new constitution that divides their homeland into 7⃣ provinces and have led the trade blockade with 🇮🇳. Bilateral ties were strained as Nepal accused India of imposing an “unofficial blockade🚫,” but India maintains that no such blockade was imposed and the restrictions are due to security concerns over the protests✊.
