Banda throws life out of gear in Siraha

LAHAN

Mar 8, 2017-

Normal life in Siraha district has been affected on the second day of the two-day banda called by Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha on Wednesday.

The alliance of seven Madhes-based parties had called the banda on Monday to protest the death of its cadres in Saptari.

Four persons died and dozens injured when police opened fire to stop the Morcha cadres from disrupting the CPN-UML Mechi-Mahakali campaign that kicked off from Kakarbhitta of Jhapa on Sunday.

The agitating Morcha cadres have been staging demonstrations by burning tyres in various parts of the district since this morning.

Major business hubs and markets, including Lahan Bazar, as well as education institutions and industries have remained closed while vehicles on short and long routes have stayed off the road. RSS
