KATHMANDU: The main opposition party in the parliament, Nepali Congress (NC) has decided to stage a nationwide protest against the government for its growing autocratic moves.
A meeting of the party’s office-bearers and former office-bearers held on Friday has decided to gripe against the government in all 77 districts on December 14.
The main opposition party formerly observing the government activities patiently despite the latter’s defaming the democratic norms and values and endangering the system became furious when the party’s senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel was arrested and detained for three hours in Tanahun on Wednesday.
The administration had defended the act as an attempt to stop the prospective clash between the protesting cadres of the ruling Nepal Communist Party and the main opposition party.
NC Senior leader was scheduled to inaugurate the Boldikhola bridge in Tanahun home district prior to getting arrested. After the incident, the NC took to the streets in anger.
According to NC leader Gopal Man Shrestha, the senior leaders of the party would join the protest rally in districts.
“NC will be staging against the corruption cases of the government, the mockery of the rule of law, and the seemingly growing autocratic attitude of the government in nation-wide protest to be launched on December 14,” NC Leader Shrestha told media.
The meeting at NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba’s residence in Budhanilkantha has also decided to demand the immediate convening of the winter session of Parliament as well.
