Kathmandu, 25 June:A nationwide general strike called by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’-led Nepal Communist Party has badly affected life throughout the country. The working class as well as daily wage earners are affected the worst.
The outlawed Maoist outfit called a strike today to protest the killing of its Sarlahi District in-charge Kumar Paudel.
Even though there has not been a mass protest anywhere, public transportation has been affected by the strike. The number of public transport vehicles was low in the morning. Most schools throughout the country have also closed down, according police.
