Bhadrapur, Dec 15: Normal life in Jhapa remained affected today due to a general shutdown (banda) enforced by the Federal Limbuwan Party Nepal, protesting over the constitution amendment proposal.
Vehicles en-route to both long and short routes have remained off the road. However, motorcycles, milk containers, vehicles operating for emergency purposes including ambulance, those belonging to press and carrying vegetables are allowed to operate freely. The party has said that it is positive towards the call of civil society and human rights activists to keep the academic institutes free from the impact of banda.
The party has decried the proposal to disintegrate the province no 5 in the amendment bill. RSS
