Civil society condemns YCL demonstrations
Feb 25, 2015-
KATHMANDU: Civil Society members have condemned the recent demonstrations staged by Young Communication League (YCL) cadres holding sharp-edged bamboo sticks and rods in the Capital.
A statement issued by Sushil Pyakurel, Charan Prasai, Kapil Shrestha, Dinesh Tripathi and Kanak Mani Dixit states sharp-edged bamboo sticks and poles are akin to weaponry in the context of public demonstrations and their use by political forces are condemnable. The UCPN (M) sister wing, organised the protest on Tuesday. “Demonstrations likes those of Tuesday can jeopardise the attempts for dialogue by further distancing the political forces,” reads the statement. YCL Chairman Ganesh Man Pun said they did not demonstrate weapons. (PR)
