Leaders of Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha have attempted to attack UCPN-M Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal on March 13.
The assault attempt on Dahal occurred as he had arrived for the inauguration of the 23rd district council. SLMM cadres and leaders waved black flags at him at the program venue in District Development Committee's hall labeling him anti-madhesi. They had tried to hurl chairs at the UCPN-M Chairperson.
According to SP Shyam Lal Gwayali, the security persons protected the chief guest by surrounding him. He said that five leaders of SLMM had been arrested for interfering the program.
