Anti-Government protestors clash with Police in Kathmandu

Updated:1 week, 5 days ago

Kathmandu (Nepal), Jan 11 (ANI): Demonstrators, who were staging a protest against caretaker Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's decision to dissolve the lower house of Nepal Parliament, clashed with the police on Sunday. Students from All Nepal National Free Student Union (ANNFSU) on Sunday took out a demonstration in the capital of Kathmandu, where they tried to drag a bullock cart to mock Oli's statement made several years ago. The clash between the police and agitating students ensued when the former tried to advance toward Baneshwor from Maitighar while pulling a bullock cart. President Bidya Devi Bhandari's decision to dissolve the 275-member lower house on December 20 last year on the recommendation of KP Sharma Oli has sparked protests across the country. Various political parties including the rival faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) led by former Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal and former Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal have taken to the streets demanding House restoration. The government, however, announced fresh election dates for April 30 and May 10 later this year.
