People took to the street in Pokhara in excitement and happiness over the new Nepalese constitution, which most citizens welcome. Some people, including members of the cultural minority group Madhesi, object to the constitution because they are not convinced it will protect all citizens and have been demonstrating against it in protests that have at times turned violent.
