The locals and various organizations from Kathmandu Metropolitan City, have criticized the ways Mayor Balendra Shah is functioning. They blamed Mayor Shah for carrying out illegal works and atrocities.

They organized a peaceful assembly in a bid to warn KMC to immediately stop the atrocities meted out with illegal and haphazard works. The activities that began in KMC were launched without alternatives, resulting in public ire and agony.

The demonstrators at Maitighar Mandala sported placards reading, ‘stop dozer terror’, ‘don’t evacuate people while expanding road’, ‘ensure rights to indigenous people’, ‘adhere to constitutional rights to citizens’, ‘KMC, stop atrocities,ies’, etc. They asserted that Mayor Shah arbitrarily mobilized dozers on the citizens’ property.

The central chair of the valley road expansion affected the people’s struggle committee, Suman Sayami, commented although Shah was elected to go to the city, his working style is against the people. So, the locals are forced to stage sit-in.

Sayami, who was also one of the contenders with Shah in the local level election, informed that the vigilance assembly was held to exert pressure on the KMC Mayor Shah to stop illegal works.

If the work of the bulldozing of personal property continues, the protest programs would flare, he warned. Various organizations including Jyapu Mahaguthi Nepal joined the protest.
