It's a serious problem of politics right now - you don't have a party that has a critique of capitalism and is also committed to questions of ethnic representation in the same way the Madhesi parties are. There's a real gap here.

Live from Kathmandu, journalist Shubhanga Pandey explores the recent political history of Nepal - from liberalized economy to post-coup civil war - and explains how the country's recent constitutional crisis exposes both economic and ethnic divisions among the population, and Nepal's Maoists left - which finds itself unable to balance concerns of regional autonomy and ethnic nationalism.

Shubhanga wrote the Jacobin article The Next Nepali Revolution.
