KATHMANDU, NOV 17 -
Rallies and protests brought vehicular movement in different parts of the Capital city to a halt on Thursday.
A rally was organised by Metropolitan Traffic Police Division (MTPD) on the occasion of the 6th anniversary of Metropolitan Police Commissioner’s Office. Participated by police personnel, government officials and students, the rally rounded different places.
Another rally was taken out on the occasion of the 14th anniversary of Inland Revenue Department. Akhil Nepal Sukumabashi Sangh also organised a protest rally. All these rallies resulted in traffic chaos.
Inspector Abhay Bikram Shah of MTPD said the rallies affected vehicular movement for several hours in Bagbazar, Putalisadak, Padmodaya, Singha Durbar, Bhadrakali, Asan, Bhotahiti, New Road, Lazimpat, Maharajgunj, Gaushalla, Koteshwor, New Baneshwor, Kalimati, Kalanki and in some other places.
The protest organised by Sukumbashi Sangh created more traffic snarls, said Shah, adding that rallyists passed through the middle of roads not leaving space for vehicles.
Not only vehicles, public movement was also disturbed by the rallies and protest. “Why do they disturb others to fulfil their own vested interest?” asked Shyam Lama, a resident of New Baneshwor, referring to the difficulty he faced while trying to negotiate the rallies at Babarmahal.
