It was a sigh of relief for Nepali to be able to live without Nepal Bandha or city bandha for some time. But, it seems, bandha are returning.
After bandha of few days in the Eastern part of the county (in which, wild elephant roamed in Birtamod city), Chitwan was closed yesterday (Dec 16, 2011). The strike called after the death of Nepali Congress member and Chitwan Tarun Dal’s president, Shiva Poudel. Shiva Poudel was in jail after alleged shooting spree and was attacked within the jail.
One man protests, and number of onlookers, afraid of the bamboo club he carries, obey his threatening orders!
In the photo above, a man claiming to be a Nepali Congress Party member is seen threatening a bike rider with a bamboo club in hand.
Apart from disrupting the daily lives of many people and businesses, tire-burning on the road cause adverse effects in health of general public. Such an action also damages roads and pollute the environment. Nobody cleans the debris left after the band and it
continues to damage the local environment.
