KATHMANDU: The four-hour long early morning strike launched by CPN-UML-aligned Youth Association Nepal (YAN) demanding Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai’s resignation continued on Tuesday also.

Unlike on Sunday and Monday, today’s strike was nationwide. Public transportation, and private vehicles remained off the road with YAN cadres jamming all the major exits and squares.

The strike is supported by 16 youth and student organisations aligned with opposition parties demanding the ouster of the Bhattarai led government and formation of a national consensus government to resolve the ongoing political impasse.
