Home Minister's party enforces strike in Janakpur
Home Minister Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar's party Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum-Loktantrik has enforced a general strike in Janakpur in protest of 'police high-handedness'.
Local party leaders have alleged that police manhandled cadres, who were at the Dhanusa District Office to seek information on a graft case, 'for no reason', on Sunday.
Dhanusa LDO Taranath Sharma said that it was he who was attacked by the party cadres, and the other way round.
Meanwhile, life in the city has been affected due to the closure. Vehicles have stayed off the road, and businesses shut. nepalnews.com
