KATHMANDU: Following the footsteps of student unions and taking into consideration against the public outrage against the bandh organizers, thirty three political parties agitating against the appointment of Lokman Singh Karki as the Chief of Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority have decided to call off Monday’s strike.
A meeting of the 33 parties convened in the Capital on Sunday decided to lift the strike in view of the Rato Machhindranath Jatra which will be observed on Monday. The parties, including the Mohan Baidhya -led CPN-Maoist, had called for a strike on Monday to protest the decision to appoint controversial former Chief Secretary Lokman Singh Karki as CIAA head. However, the other agitation programs would remain unaffected, the parties said.
Although bandh is the last resort of protest, Nepali politicians and other groups resort to bandh for fulfilling their petty interest. Neglecting the hardships faced by general people and compulsion of the people, the bandh organizers claim that their strike received widespread support.
