KATHMANDU, June 30: The Federal Alliance on Thursday decided to further strengthen the protest in the coming days.

The Secretariat meeting of Federal Alliance held to evaluate more than a month-long Kathmandu-centric protest and chalk out future strategies decided to intensify protest, according to Secretariat member, Keshav Jha.

At the first phase of the Kathmandu-centric protest, the Federal Alliance had picketed Singha Durbar and Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar and then had organized corner assemblies in different parts of the Capital City.

The leaders are currently staging relay sit-in at Khullamanch.

Jha told Republica Online that they will step up the protest after the end of the sit-in in mid July.

During the meeting, leaders vented their ire saying that there was a less participation in the protests by Tarai Madhes Democratic Party and Sadhbhawana Party.  

TMDP Vice-chairman Brikhesh Chandra Lal defended the accusation  by saying that they failed to give time to the protest as they were focused on the General Convention of the party.

Jha said that the leaders agreed to announce fresh protest by holding a meeting after a week.
