Dr. Raut has worked in big firms in the US after completing his Ph.D. degree from Cambridge University. He has worked as a computer Missile engineer, and United States Defense Programmer. He was doing well with the job but in 2011, he returned to Nepal. Why? He returned to Nepal to give back to his country and homeland.
In 2011, he jointly launched a Madhes independence movement. The young leader, who appeared to have given up a nice life in the West for the cause of Madhes, immediately drew the attention of the Madhesi teenagers. His many arrests as a result of his uninhibited tirades against the “racist” Kathmandu regime further increased his appeal.
He then formed Alliance for Independent Madhesh. It identified itself as a confederation of Terai people who had suffered discrimination under the Pahadi civilization in its manifesto. It has members from numerous sub-ethnic groups, activists, political parties, and organizations that aim to create an independent Madhesh.
Despite being founded in 2007, they did not make their manifesto public until a press conference on May 21, 2012, in Kathmandu. This was to bring about the independence of the Madhesh through peaceful and non-violent means.
CK Raut saw many discriminations, racism, and slavery imposed on Nepali people of Madhesi origin by the “so-called” Pahadi people of Nepal. And he wanted to end so. He was not like other people who would just sit back and relax. He indicated to end the unfair discriminations for which he was even kept on house arrest.
In the 2022 election of Nepal, he won against Upendra Yadav and became a member of the parliament of Nepal from his own party the Janamat Party.

The agreement was signed between the the-then home minister, Ram Bahadur Thapa, and CK Raut at Rashtriya Sabha Griha.
