Nepal late Thursday announced plans to establish a committee to review disputed provisions within the country's new constitution which sparked deadly protests and a crippling border blockade that ended earlier this month.More than 50 people have died in clashes between police and Madhesi protesters, who say the federal state borders laid out in the constitution will limit their representation in parliament.The decision comes on the eve of Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli's trip to India, his first foreign visit since becoming premier in October, as he seeks to repair strained ties with New Delhi, which has criticized the charter and urged dialogue with the Madhesis.But protesting parties said they would not back the new committee without a prior commitment to revise internal borders.
