CPN-Maoist Biplov faction has called Nationwide Bandh (General Strike) protesting against the bilateral trade agreement – Lipulekh signed between India and China.
Different sources including security forces have confirmed the Bandh. Furthermore, in the past general strike called by the group was reported to be enforced and effective with no vehicular movement and some of the vehicles being vandalized on the road during Bandh. In this context, it is expected that Bandh is likely to be effective across the country including Kathmandu Valley. However, at this moment, it is difficult to predict the real impact across the country including the Kathmandu Valley.
