Bagmati, Bhaktapur, Bhaktapur

Nepali Congress on Monday staged an anti-government rally from Sirjanagar to Suryabinayak Chowk in Bhaktapur. The rally turned into a mass-meet. Although it was said that physical distance would be maintained and masks would be made mandatory in the protest program, it did not seem to be implemented.

The main opposition party Nepali Congress has called for a nationwide demonstration against the government on December 14. They are protesting in the streets accusing the government of failing to control and manage the coronavirus, protecting corruption and lacking good governance.
