The Kathmandu DAO on Monday declared the area from Maitighar Mandala to New Baneshwar a prohibited zone for 30 days with immediate effect, a decision it said was to maintain peace and security and prevent clashes.
The administration has also designated separate locations for the two groups’ demonstrations. Following the Kathmandu administration’s decision, Youth Federation is preparing to hold its demonstration at Tinkune, and Prasai’s group at Balkhu.
