JTCC announces new protest program

The Joint Tourism Coordination Committee (JTCC) has announced a new round of protest program demanding resignation of Subash Nirola, acting CEO of Nepal Tourism Board.

Issuing a statement on Wednesday, the JTCC said they would resort to various protests until their demands are met.

“The government intervened in our peaceful protests, as police arrested 15 tourism entrepreneurs injuring around two dozen more,” said the statement.

“We request the concerned state agencies – National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the related committee of legislature-parliament – to investigate the attack on tourism entrepreneurs,” added the statement.

As per their new schedule, protests will be organized for four days from May 29 to June 1 in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan.
