Rally organized demanding to find alternative to bandha


Bagmati, Chitawan, Bharatpur

Industrialists and businesspersons in Chitwan have appealed to the government and the stakeholders to create an atmosphere conducive to industry and business. A peace rally was also taken out this morning in Narayagarh calling for an alternative to the forms of protests including the bandh. Our call is to keep the industrial sector out of politics, said businessman of Chitwan Kul Prasad Sharma. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry has also been urged to seek a way out of the current situation. The repeated bandh is taking a huge toll on the industrial sector. Chamber President said the first impact of strikes fall on the industry and business sector while pointing out that the sector was already reeling under a crisis due to the recent earthquake. Meanwhile, the Tharu Kalyankari Sabha Chitwan announced a strike in Chitwan today. As a result, industries and business, as well as schools and market, remain closed.
