Joint struggle committee withdraws general strike
Ilam, Sept 24: The Limbuwan Joint Struggle Committee has called off the general strike it has enforced in nine eastern districts of Nepal for the past four days.
The general strike has been withdrawn following a four-point agreement between agitating parties and three major political parties.
Dambar Loringden, Chairperson of Federal Limbuwan Party Nepal Ilam – one of the constituents of the committee – informed that the general strike has been withdrawn with the agreement to make effort to release their cadres arrested during agitation, not to organize general strike in coming days and approach the state for the compensation of the damaged structure of the central office of Federal Limbuwan Party.
With the agreement and subsequent withdrawal of general strike, the life in Ilam, Panchthar, Taplejung, Jhapa, Morang, Sunsari, Sankhuwasabha, Dhankuta and Terhathum districts is getting normal.
Likewise, the Federal Limbuwan Party, which has been protesting the delineation of the federal boundaries, has also called off the general strike and shutdown. With this, the situation in eastern mountainous districts is gaining normalcy, shared Mechi Zonal Police Office.
The party has been putting forth a demand to declare nine eastern districts the Limbuwan State. The Limbuwan has taken back its decision of general strike after the general public along with business community and workers warned to retaliate the strike enforced for a long time, said police.
Following the withdrawal of the protest programme, the transport service has become smooth in Damak, Birtamodh, Dhulabari, Chandragadhi, Bhadrapur and Kakadbhitta. RSS
