In Pics: Youths stage symbolic protest against HoR dissolution in Kathmandu

KATHMANDU: Ever since Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli dissolved the lower house of representatives (HoR) of the federal parliament, many demonstrations have been held across the nation against the PM's move.

Youth activists today organised a symbolic protest using magnifying glass to read the constitution- a jibe at the act of dissolution- at Maitighar in Kathmandu.

Earlier, Prime Minister had taken the decision after getting cornered within his own party following months of intra-party rift in the ruling NCP.

Since then, people from various walks of lives have been protesting against PM Oli's move, accusing him of pushing the nation's towards political instability.

Here are few images of symbolic protest captured by photojournalist Skanda Gautam for The Himalayan Times today.
