Home Ministry concerned over announcement of vehicular strike

KATHMANDU: The Home Ministry expressed that its serious attention has been drawn towards the announcement of a nationwide vehicular strike on May 26.

The announcement of strike was made by the transport entrepreneurs and the workers following the hike in penalty for traffic offences under Section 164 of the Motor Vehicle and Transport Management Act, 1993.

Releasing a press statement on Tuesday, the Home Ministry said it is every citizen's responsibility and duty to abide by the laws passed by the Legislature-Parliament.

"Any reservation or disagreement on any issue can be solved in a legal manner, it is mandatory for all to abide by the rules and not go beyond constitution and legal provision while making protest," underscored the Ministry.

While making protest, others' human rights must not be breached, stressed the Ministry, making clear that any person and group involved in activities against laws deserve action.
