KATHMANDU, April 28: The All Nepal National Free Students’ Union on Thursday protested against the government’s decision to provide Rs 200,000 each to the disqualified former Maoist combatants.

The students affiliated to the sister organization of the CPN-UML demonstrated against the government move in front of Tri-Chandra Campus and Ratna Rajya Campus. The students displayed placards and chanted slogans stating “Corruption is unacceptable at a time when the government is unable to provide salaries to the civil servants.”

A Cabinet meeting held on March 20 decided to make a working guideline to provide the aforementioned amount to the former combatants. Recently, the Ministry of Home Affairs prepared the guidelines as per the government’s instruction.

The United Nations Mission in Nepal had identified a total of 4,009 former Maoist combatants as disqualified.
