Workers mobilized by Sino Hydro under the Tanahu Hydropower Project have been protesting for the third time since the afternoon of December 4 accusing the company for hiring the workers who tested positive for Covid-19 and for not keeping them under isolation. The pre-agreement after the earlier protest decided to keep the workers in quarantine for seven days and bring them to work after PCR test, but it was also violated.
In the last week of September, the workers had agitated demanding PCR testing of all the workers who had gone to their homes during Dashain festival. The work was started after the construction company tested the PCR of all the workers.
