Regmi urges agitators to end protest on Kakre Bihar issue; Students padlock Mid Western University


KATHMANDU: The only mandate of the current Chief Justice led government is to hold the elections of the constituent assembly, but the government is busy for listening the woes of different groups and settling their issues rather than concentrating on its main mandate of holding the elections.

Chairperson of Interim Election Council, Khil Raj Regmi on Monday urged the agitators to end their protests on Kakre Bihar issue, saying that he would bring it to the cabinet meeting to resolve it at the government’s level. Speaking with a delegation of Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN), Regmi said the government has taken the issue seriously and would work sincerely to find a solution.

The agitators have been demanding the government to allow them establish a Buddha idol in the historic site of Kakre Bihar. The locals, however, have been disputing the claims that the site is a Buddhist shrine. The agitators have been demonstrating in front of Singha Durbar in Kathmandu and in Surkhet of mid-west Nepal, where the site is located

In another incident, different student organizations, which are in agitation putting forth various demands, have locked office-bearers of the Mid-Western University including Vice-Chancellor, Registrar and Dean in a quarter of one of them on Monday morning.

A group of students led by All Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU) locked Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Padamlal Devkota, Registrar Thekendra Prakash Giri as well as other office-bearers at Devkota’s quarters at 10:00 am. All of them were at Devkota’s quarters at the time.

Secretary of ANNFSU, Surkhet, Prem Khadka, said that the quarters of the office-bearers of the University was padlocked today under their agitation program. Khadka said that they have also seized vehicles of Vice-Chancellor Devkota and Registrar Giri and the vehicles have now been kept at the District Administration Office, Surkhet.
