UDMF had been expressing grudges and intensified it especially after the Rajbiraj incident where five of their men lost their lives in a police shooting.

A meeting of the UDMF held at the party office of the Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party at Bijulibazaar on Tuesday took the decision in this regard, said General Secretary of the National Madhes Socialist Party, Keshav Jha.

A total of 49 lawmakers of seven different parties associated with the UDMF are representing in the Legislature-Parliament.

The meeting of the Federal Alliance held on March 7 had asked the government to pass the constitution amendment proposal with some revisions and to withdraw the decision on election of local levels within a week.

The UDMF said that it withdrew the support to the government from today itself, saying the government did not take any initiative to address their demands.
