Madhes, Dhanusha, Janakpur

Agitating students in Dhanusha vandalised a vehicle used by Province 2 Land Management, Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Yogendraraj Yadav, while he was on his way to Birgunj from Janakpur to participate in a meeting of Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal’s sister organisation Socialist Youth Forum. “The students were obstructing the road. As we reached there, some of them started pelting stones at our vehicle. We somehow managed to get out of the place,” said the minister.

Student Ramesh Yadav, who was involved in the demonstration, sought the resignation of Education Minister Girirajmani Pokharel. Janakpur-Dhalkebar road was obstructed for about an hour today due to the students’ agitation.
