Madhes, Dhanusha, Janakpur

Entrepreneurs led by Dhanusha Chamber of Commerce staged a demonstration at Shivchowk in Janakpur on August 27, Thursday demanding relief from the government. Senior vice-president of the Dhanusha Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Saroj Mishra said that the government's four-month lockdown in two phases to prevent the spread of Corona infection crippled the business community. Entrepreneurs demanded the government to provide relief including tax, interest on bank, loans and discounts on rent. Entrepreneur Jani Khan complained that there is no justification for such lockdown as the border is not completely closed and there is congestion in the lockdown.
