Madheshi Question and India - Nepal Relation

Kantesh Kumar

Abstract: This research paper aims to provide a comparative analysis of Nepal's Tarai/Madhesh Movements through the lens of the political opportunity structure theory in social movements. Specifically, it focuses on Tarai/Madhesh Movement I initiated by the Forum for Madheshi People's Rights in 2007, which achieved success following the establishment of a federal state in Nepal, and Tarai/Madhesh Movement II led by the United Democratic Madheshi Front and the Tharuhat Joint Struggle Committee, representing Tarai/Madheshi parties and Tharu organizations respectively, which faced failure due to disagreements among political elites regarding the creation of two provinces in the Tarai/Madhesh region.
