Federal Alliance demo brings traffic movement to shambles
KATHMANDU: Traffic movement in the Capital has been affected due to a demonstration of the Federal Alliance that began this morning.
Hundreds of cadres of the Alliance had picketed Singha Darbar, the central government complex, this morning.
Cadres of 30 parties associated with the Alliance are protesting at Hanumansthan and Maitighar Mandala, the southeastern and southwestern points outside Singha Darbar respectively.
The agitators have demanded rewriting of the Constitution to incorporate their rights.
The Alliance leaders including Rajendra Mahato, Mahendra Yadav, Raj Kishor Yadav among others are staging the protest. However, security personnel are trying to ease the traffic movement in the area.
Earlier, the government had urged protesters to organise protests peacefully. Tarai-centric and ethnicity-based parties are protesting against the proposed delineation of the federal units.
