Representatives of political parties and civil society have called for a general strike here in Mugu against the decision to retain Karnali in the undivided Far Western state in the name of federalism. Public life has been thrown out of gear due to the banda called in the district headquarters, Gamgadi.
The protesters argue that Karnali would be in loss if integrated with undivided Far Western State. They claim the identity of Karnali, from where Nepali language is believed to have originated, is at stake.
The agitating leaders demanded the Constituent Assembly correct the agreement on state delineation made on Saturday.
