Nepal in the Grip of a Major Crisis Due to the Border Blockade

For the past more than two months Nepal’s Madhesi people and Madhesi political parties have blocked the border crossing from India to Nepal thereby causing a major fuel, food, and medical supplies shortage in the country. The Madhesi people reside across Nepal’s southern Terai plains bordering India and they have been protesting against Nepal’s new constitution which was adopted on 20th September. Table Talk discusses the causes, consequences, and implication of Nepal’s border blockade by the Madhesi groups.
