  • Deuba expresses support for activists’ agenda

Kathmandu, August 1

In yet another operation of the riot police, more than 35 youth activists representing ‘Enough is Enough’ campaign were arrested, even before they could stage a protest outside Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s official residence in Baluwatar.

The youths were arrested and jailed the whole day even before they could gather around or display placards.
The youths were planning to stage a peaceful protest in support of activist Iih, 26, who has been on a fast-unto death for the last 16 days.

This is the second time activist Iih has been on hunger strike demanding implementation of the 12-point agreement reached between him and the government on July 7.

Hundreds of youths who had come to join the protest were arrested
