Bandh called by poll opposing alliance affects normal life in valley


KATHMANDU: Normal life in Kathmandu valley has been affected due to the bandh (shutdown strike) called by the 33-party alliance of poll opposing parties led by CPN-Maoist has enforced to exert pressure on the government to full their demands which includes holding an all-party round-table conference and changing the interim government.

Normal life in the Kathmandu Valley, which includes the capital Kathmandu including Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts, has been partially affected since early morning today due to the bandh imposed chiefly by Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist to protest against the government turning a deaf ear to their demands. Shops and businesses in the main market centers and other business areas remain closed while educational institutions also remain shut due to the day-long bandh which was postponed by a day by CPN-M in view of the final of the SAFF Championship 2013 held at Dashrath Stadium on Wednesday.

The Maoist led alliance has been making its protests more strict after the High Level Political Committee of major political parties decided to go for the election without fulfilling their demands. With chances of the CPN-M joining the November 19 election waning, the government on Tuesday decided to move on with election preparation while still keeping the doors for negotiations with the poll-opposing parties open.

However, saying that the election that is being carried out without forging national consensus will be devoid of any meaning, the 33-party alliance said they would continue with their protest programmes until the government agrees to create an enabling atmosphere for polls by acceding to their demands.
