Five cargo trucks entered Nepal through Birganj-Raxaul border on Friday for the first time in four months since the Indian blockade started in late September.

The Indian side sent the cargo trucks carrying machinery early morning on Friday when none of the protesters were present at the border. Likewise, two freight carriers also entered Raxaul from the Nepal side. Last week, businessmen had removed obstructions at the Miteri bridge to bring in a few things on rickshaws and carts.

After the trucks entered through the border point, protesters of the Madhesi front gathered at the bridge and obstructed the movement at the border again.

“It is unlikely the blockade will be lifted suddenly because India would like it to be known that it wasn’t responsible for the blockade and it was due to obstructions by protesters on the Nepal side,” said an analyst.
