30-party front’s three-day strike on

KATHMANDU, Apr 7: Today’s meeting of the 30-party alliance led by the Unified CPN-Maoist decided to continue with its scheduled three-day nationwide strike beginning tomorrow.

However, sources claimed that the duration of the shutdown might be decreased depending on public sentiment.

Alliance spokesman Prem Bahadur Singh claimed that the meeting held at UCPN-M’s parliamentary party office in Singha Durbar decided to go ahead with the three-day nationwide shutdown despite protest from different sections of the society.

He, however, said the meeting decided to analyse public sentiment every evening, as the shutdown would be effective from 5am to 5pm. Singh said today’s meeting decided to include Badri Neupane-led Chure Bhawar Rastriya Ekata Party in the front.
