KATHMANDU, March 10: The general strike imposed by Federal Alliance has significantly affected the normal lives throughout the country.
In the Terai region, the impact of strike has been more significant than in other parts of the country. In the Terai districts, the shops, schools and colleges are completely closed due to the strike. Long route vehicles are not moving. Only rickshaws and motor bikes are seen moving.
No serious incident has occurred yet.
