KATHMANDU: Samyukta Janamukti Morcha including Rastriya Janamukti Party has withdrawn its three-day general strike following a six-point deal signed with the government on Sunday.
The agitation mobilisation committee coordinator KP Palungwa announced withdrawal of its planned three-day nationwide general strike amidst a press meet today.
Police have started releasing the cadres detained during the torch rally yesterday evening.
The indigenous parties including Rastriya Janamukti Party had called nationwide bandh in a bid to pressurise the big parties to ensure timely constitution with the guarantee of restructuring of state based on identity.
The Kathmandu Valley witnessed an insignificant impact of the strike while the bandh had hit the other parts especially the eastern region where vehicles stayed off the roads.
Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai had warned Janamukti Party of serious consequences on Saturday unless the Party withdrew the strike.
