KATHMANDU — The Sanghiya Gathabandhan (Federal Alliance), which had resorted to Kathmandu-centric protests to pressure the government to address their demands, has decided to continue its protest in Kathmandu for 10 more days, but away from Singha Durbar and Baluwatar.
The protest will be held at Mangal Bazar, New Baneshwor, Swoyambhu, Chabahil, Kirtipur, Tribhuwan University Gate, Balaju, Kalanki, Madhyapur Thimi, Asan and Lagan Tole.
Likewise, protests will be held in Birgunj on May 29 and in Pokhara on May 30.
The alliance, which staged protests outside Singha Durbar and the prime minister’s official residence in Baluwatar in the last three days, held a demonstration at Ratna Park on Wednesday.
The alliance has been seeking revision of provincial boundaries to ensure identity-based federal units, proportional inclusion of marginalised communities and equal right for women to transmit nationality to their children.Follow @gorkhapost
