The youth student organizations, Nepal Students Union and ANNISU (Revolutionary), who have been protesting for a few days, protested at the gate of Nepal Rastra Bank next to Prime Minister’s Baluwatar Gate No. 3 on Sunday morning to prevent Governor Adhikari from entering the office.
The police intervened in their demonstration. Some protesters have been arrested by the police.
Students are protesting against a person named M. Adhikari, a member of the finance and planning department of CPN-UML, claiming that he is Governor Adhikari.
