The Limbuwan Issue

Limbuwan was a Kingdom which had ten states before Nepal was formed.
After the unification of Nepal, there was a Limbuwan-Gorkha treaty.
After many years of peaceful life, Limbuwan has now various members who seek to claim back their land and are also demanding for rights. The Limbuwan group has quickly gained a lot of power in a short amount of time, they have been successful in carrying out various blockades in the Eastern Nepal. There have been many discussions with the government to settle the issue however they still havent found any solution.
*Failure to solve this problem may lead to violence between the Limbuwan and Madhesi front. Morang is being fought for by both of these groups.

Most of the people in the hill villages are very swayed by influence hence Limbuwans popularity. Households have come into conflict due to different peoples choices. Young teenagers are fighting for Limbuwan without knowing the cause, people want to seek for the ultimate position without doing the hardwork. This is where the country has been failed, the elders have given the wrong notion that one can use their power to reach a higher place. Limbuwan hoardings, writings, list of demands, can be seen everywhere in the Limbuwan region. Even in the buses there are placards which read ‘Limbuwan Kranti’. Is this necessary? Is this what the ‘Naya Nepal’ is about?

There are also threats that whoever does not abide by their rules will get punishment. Now where is the freedom of speech?
