Students take out rally against China


Madhes, Bara, Kalaiya

A group of students took out a rally in Kaliaya on Wednesday against what they term as China’s move to help Nepal to end the fuel crisis as a strategy to influence Tarai agitation. The students protested against China’s decision to support the government’s policy to procure fuel from china instead of trying to end the crisis through talks with agitating Madhes-based parties. They were against the government’s failure to end the long-drawn-out strikes in Tarai districts. The Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha (SLMM) has been enforcing strike in the Tarai region against the demarcation of state borders in the new federal set-up. The students marched around the main thoroughfare of Kalaiya carrying placards.
