Nepal grinds to a halt for three day national strike
Opposition parties in Nepal have called a three-day national strike, bringing road transport to a halt across the nation. Numerous vehicles have been burned by mobs enforcing the transport ban and most transport companies have removed their vehicles from the roads. Protesters are calling for the new draft constitution be passed by a national consensus, rather than a vote in parliament, in the latest hiccup in Nepal’s transition from monarchy to socialist democracy. ekantipur.com
