Transport workers withdraw protest after agreement with government

KATHMANDU: Transport workers have withdrawn their protest following an agreement with the government.

Nepal Transport Independent Workers’ Union Chairman Bhim Jwala Rai said that they decided to withdraw the protest after the government expressed its readiness to address their demands during a meeting with Physical Infrastructure and Transport Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha among other government representatives held in the Ministry today.

He said that an agreement has been reached to take action against Sunil Kunwar, Manager of the Lhotse Company, who attacked the transport workers, arrest Pankaj Malla, address the demands of the transport workers and release the workers who were arrested while staging the demonstration today.

Earlier on Monday, the Transport Workers’ Association had announced that they would halt public transport services in the Kathmandu Valley from today if their demands are not addressed.
