Five-day general strike in east takes toll on life

BHADRAPUR: A normal life in the east region of the country has been thrown out of gear due to the continuous banda or general strike enforced in the region by different organizations since the last five days.

The daily wage-earners have been the hardest hit by the shutdown. Thousands of workers have been hit hard by the shutdown as they have not been able to go for work.

Different organizations and sister organizations of political parties are imposing the banda, calling for guaranteeing their rights in the new constitution.

A shortage of cooking gas is seen in the market in Jhapa district as transport services are closed due to the banda. The 65 gasoline stations throughout the district have run out of petrol and there is also shortage of essential commodities of daily use.
Meanwhile, the Eastern Tharuwan and Kochila State Struggle Committee have declared a five-day general strike in the region beginning today. Public transport is closed due to this shutdown.
