New Baneshwor in chaos due to rallies for and against secularism

New Baneshwor area in the capital has turned chaotic on Sunday afternoon following rallies taken out putting forth two contradicting demands.

Security personnel, in large numbers, have been fanned out in the area to avert any untoward incident.

A rally was organized in the capital this afternoon in support of the continuity of Nepal as a secular state in the new constitution. People following Buddism, Kirant, Islam, Christian and Bon religions took part in the rally that began from Bhrikutimandap, Exhibition road.

The rally converged into a gathering reaching New Baneswor chowk.

Likewise, Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal has taken out another rally demanding to reinstate Nepal as a Hindu state.

The party has organized a corner assembly at Krishna Tower after police stopped them at the place.
