The Tarai-Madhesh Loktantrik Party (Nepali: तराई-मधेश लोकतान्त्रिक पार्टी) is a political party in Terai-Madhesh of Nepal, formed by former Minister for Science and Technology and Nepali Congress Teraibasi-Madheshi leader Mahantha Thakur. The foundation of the party was announced on December 27, 2007.[1][2] The party has four members in the interim parliament (including Thakur).[3]

On December 31, 2007, a Central Working Committee of the party was formed, chaired by Thakur. Other members are Hridayesh Tripathi, Brikhesh Chandra Lal, Mahendra Prasad Yadav, Ram Chandra Raya, Sarbendra Nath Shukla, Anish Ansari, Ram Chandra Kushwaha, Srikrishna Yadav, Govinda Prasad Chaudhary, Ram Kumar Chaudhary, Ram Kumar Sharma, Jitendra Sonal, Bishwanath Saha, Satyawati Kurmi, Kritaram Kumhal, Dilip Singh and Sheikh Chandtara.[4]

The party obtained 3.49 per cent of the votes in 2008 and took 21 seats in Constituent Assembly election.[5]

On December 31, 2010 the party suffered vertical split when 9 lawmakers led by Senior General Secretary and Minister of Industry Mahendra Raya Yadav separated and created new party named Terai Madhes Loktantrik Party-Nepal. The nine lawmakers were Ramani Raya, Govinda Chaudhary, Dan Bahadur Chaudhary, Chandan Shah, Salauddin Musalman, Sabitri Devi Yadav, Arbinda Sah and Urmila Mahato. According to Yadav, the party had to split due to autocratic tendencies of Party President Mahanta Thakur, and his unilateral decision making.[6]
