‘Refrain from rallies on roads’
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) said on Wednesday that its attention has been drawn to a political rally on Tuesday which obstructed the movements of members of the public as it was organised in the middle of the road.
The CPN-UML on Tuesday had organised its election programme in Baneshwor occupying the road near the Parliament building.
Without naming any party, the national rights body said it found during its monitoring that a political rally on November 28 occupying the road in Baneshwor created obstructions to the movements of the members of the public.
