KATHMANDU: Prime Minister, KP Sharma Oli has said that the secessionist and separatist mentality and movement has come to an end following the agreement reached between the government and the Alliance for Independent Madhesh.

PM Oli opined that the termination of the separatist activities in a smooth manner was an important and positive achievement towards the national peace and security.

The government and the Alliance led by CK Raut inked an 11-point political agreement on March 8. The Alliance had been waging a movement in the Madhesh putting forth various demands.

Stating that the agreement which encourages giving up secessionist activities and joining the mainstream politics is a big thing, he said adding that only those with personal dissatisfaction and vested interest are opposing the deal.

The Prime Minister made it clear that there could not be a referendum on issues of national sovereignty, indivisibility and independence. “There are some people who have become restless like the fish without water when the separatist activities were curbed. Holding a referendum on topics that undermine the national integrity and sovereignty is unthinkable,” he asserted.

Issue of national security should not be viewed from a singular or narrow mindset but should be understood as a wider dimension, Prime Minister Oli said.

Addressing the 18th anniversary program of the National Security Council Secretariat here today, Prime Minister said that the National Security Council had an important role in ending the separatist activities, the prime minister said, “The council will play a role to the extent of guaranteeing the national security.”
