UML Wing & 15 other Student’s Union Enforces Transport Strike
They plan to enforce a three-hour Kathmandu valley bandh from 6 am to 9 am on August 8 and clamp a four-hour Nepal bandh in other places leaving Kathmandu valley from 6 am to 10 am on August 8.
According to the latest information received by us the the banda program is to continue to give more pressure on Maoist government to resign and pave the way for new government.
Asked why the banda is selected at that certain time Basnet said that “We don’t want to cause trouble to the public by staging chakkajam and bandh for the whole day, therefore we have opted for short and effective strikes meant to press the government to quit without causing severe hardships to the public”
Basnet also clarified that the program’s schedule is reduced by 1 hour in tha valley keeping in mind the effect of banda on the student and also he also said that the college & school buses will be allowed to move without any trouble.
The half and hour banda is to continue from 4pm in the afternoon.

Shrawn 26 : सिंहदरबार घेराउ
