LAHAN — Manish Kumar Suman, General Secretary of the protesting Sadbhawana Party, a constituent of the protesting Federal Alliance, said the letter received from the government on Sunday for resumption of negotiations had been viewed in a positive light.
In a briefing with journalists this morning, Suman said the Alliance would hold a meeting and come up with a substantive standpoint regarding the government proposal.
The leader said the Alliance would remain prepared for relevant and result-oriented dialogues.
“The Alliance wants an outlet through dialogues and negotiations, the agitation prolonged because the government is not serious,” he stressed.
Suman added that the Alliance was waiting for the government’s preliminary response on its 11-point demand including treatment of agitators injured in the Madhes uprising, martyrs’ status to the deceased and withdrawal of cases against the demonstrators.
“We will sit for dialogues as soon as the government comes up with the statement” he shared.
CCTV cameras lying idle
BETRAWATI— The CCTV cameras installed at main market area and road side of Bidur Municipality in Nuwakot are lying idle.
As many as 25 sets of CCTV which were installed on the initiative of Nuwakot Chamber of Commerce and Industry are now dysfunctional.
The cameras were set up at the cost of Rs 3.5 million. The concerned side has not paid any attention to repair the cameras in the public which were helpful in maintaining security in the areas.
Right now almost all the CCTVs installed in the public places are not in functioning condition, said Basanta Kunwar, Superintendant of Police.
The cameras were installed a year ago in collaboration among the Nuwakot District Development Committee, Bidur Municipality, different banks and financial institutions.Follow @gorkhapost
