Kathmandu, September 30

The youth wing of Sajha Party has protested an assault on campaigner Gyanendra Shahi. Shahi, who runs a campaign demanding the reinstatement of monarchy and end to corruption, was reportedly attacked by cadres of the ruling Nepal Communist Party in Chitwan district on Saturday.

The organisation also expressed its concerns over obstruction of Nepali Congress leader Minendra Rijal in Rising village of Tanahun district on Sunday. Local NCP cadres were involved in the incident also.

The youth wing says such incidents would jeopardise democracy and create a sense of fear among the public. Sajha Youth Organisation’s general secretary Saroj Gautam’s statement also demands an independent probe and action against the involved.
