KAPILVASTU, Dec 6: The local administration in Kapilvastu has lifted its prohibitory orders issued earlier for the district headquarters Taulihawa, in view of the public demonstrations taking place for and against the constitution amendment proposal.
The orders that had been in effect from 6:00 am Monday were withdrawn from 10:00 am today. A meeting of the District Security Committee headed by its President and Officiating Chief District Officer Bharat Kumar Budhathoki decided to discontinue the prohibitory orders.
