The student unions including Nepali Congress-aligned Nepal Students Union (NSU), and UML-aligned All Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU) have been obstructing the government vehicle and the vehicles bearing Indian number plate to ply on roads in the capital city.
They also imposed chakkajam (transportation halt) from 9:00 to 10:00 am in front of various colleges in Kathmandu.
The protesting students said they would continue strike until the government withdraws its recent decision to hike the prices in the petroleum products.
