Yuwa Sangh, Durga Prasain prohibited from holding protests at Maitighar-New Baneshwor
KATHMANDU: Yuwa Sangh Nepal, the youth wing of the CPN-UML, and Durga Prasain, a medical sector businessman, have been prohibited from holding protests at Maitighar and New Baneshwor on November 23 (Thursday).
The District Administration Office, Kathmandu took the decision by holding discussions with both sides.
Kathmandu’s Assistant Chief District Officer Rabindra Prasad Acharya told Nepal Press over phone that both sides have been prohibited from holding protest programmes at Maitighar and New Baneshwor as they are government and sensitive places.
“From Maitighar to New Baneshwor is a sensitive area. The Supreme Court, Special Court, District Court and other government offices fall in the same area. People will also have to face problems if the programs are held in the area. That is why, a decision has been made not to allow them to organise protest assemblies from Maitighar to New Baneshwor,” Acharya said.
According to Acharya, both sides have made a written commitment to maintain peace and they will hold protest assemblies peacefully in different places.
He said that the District Administration Office made such a decision stating that there will be a threat to peace if both sides hold assemblies at the same place.
