Khabar Bhitra Ko Khabar: Protest

Posted by Anup Baral | December 02, 2016 :

Thousands of locals and cadres of both the ruling and opposition parties took to the street in Butwal opposing the government proposal to split Province-5 by separating hill districts from the southern plains in course of revising the federal boundaries. Leaders from both the ruling and opposition joined the protests organized to oppose the government's move to make changes in federal boundaries in their areas. The government has proposed shifting five hill districts of Province 5 to Province 4 to make Province 5 plains-only province. Defying party lines, senior leaders from ruling Nepali Congress (NC) Chandra Bhandari and deputy parliamentary party leader Top Bahadur Rayamajhi of CPN (Maoist Center) joined main opposition CPN-UML in the demonstrations.
