KATHMANDU: Former Deputy Prime Minister Rajendra Mahato, coordinator of the Rastriya Mukti Kranti Campaign, launched his book ‘Adhura Kranti’ (Incomplete Revolution) today.

The 381-page book was jointly released by Mahato and analyst CK Lal, among others. Published by Fine Publication, it is priced at Rs 770.

The book comprises articles on various themes such as ‘Mato ra Bato ko Pahichan’ (Identity of Soil and Road), ‘Bhasik Sangharsha’ (Linguistic Struggle), ‘Udgam ra Upekshya’ (Origin and Neglect), ‘Sangat’ (Company), and ‘Bibhedhko Antyahin Duschakra’ (Endless Vicious Cycle of Discrimination), among others.

These articles shed light on various aspects of the Madhes movement and offer insights into the facade and facets of politician Mahato.

Through his book, Mahato has endeavored to provide a platform for the voices of rebellion in Madhes.

Mahato shared that it took him seven years to write the book, which encompasses the experiences, viewpoints, and understanding of oppressed people, besides offering a glimpse into his political life.

He claimed that none of the revolutions and struggles waged so far in the country had served justice to the oppressed people, expressing confidence that the book would contribute to completing those incomplete revolutions.

He emphasized that state affairs were being governed by exclusive thinking and vision, calling for consideration of all ethnicities, classes, and communities in running state affairs.

Analyst CK Lal praised the book for viewing Nepal’s 65-year political situation from the Madhes’s perspective and chronicling the Madhes movement.

However, he noted that the book could have included other Madhesi leaders who played a role in advancing the causes of Madhes.

Prof. Dr. Bal Krishna Mabuhang commended the book for shedding light on the political struggles in Madhes and expressing the sorrows of Madhesi people.

Senior journalist Kanakmani Dixit described the book as a witness to modern political history, written by a leader who struggled for the emancipation of Madhesi people.

Human rights activist Mohana Ansari viewed the book as evidence that revolutions for ideological and social justice were still incomplete in Nepal.

Former ambassador Mahesh Dahal opined that the book would be useful in understanding the overall problems of Madhes.

Activists Suman Sayami and Buddha Tshering Moktan expressed that the book would inspire people to work towards completing the incomplete revolution of Madhes.
