KATHMANDU—The transport entrepreneurs refuse to start advance bookings for the most significant Hindu festival “Dashin” until their demands are fulfilled.
Earlier the government had frozen the transport entrepreneurs’ bank accounts and launched a probe into their movable and immovable properties after the transport committees obstructed the public transport service by enforcing a strike.
Delay in timely opening of advance bookings is also likely to fuel the black market as it will be easy to take advantage of the situation, government officials says.
All programmes of Nepal Sambat New Year 1139 cancelled
KATHMANDU— All the programmes to be organised on the occasion of the Nepal Sambat New Year 1139 have been cancelled due to the demise of pioneer of the Nepal Sambat movement, and leader of the Indigenous Nationalities movement and human rights movement, Padma Ratna Tuladhar.
All the programmes have been cancelled in honour of late Tuladhar. A meeting of Nepal Sambat Nhudah National Celebration Committee held today took the decision to this effect.
A Main Celebration Programme had already been scheduled at Basantapur, Kathmandu, on November 8 on the occasion of Nepal Sambat 1139 New Year this year too as in the previous years. All programmes to be organised at different places on the same day have also been cancelled.
Coordinator of Newa Jagaran Manch, Sujib Bajracharya, said that the meeting also decided to organise all the cancelled programmes at suitable time after the 13th day of the demise of Tuladhar.Follow @gorkhapost
