KATHMANDU, Jan 15: Nepali Congress (NC) is staging nationwide protests against the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) in all 753 local units of the government on Saturday.
Earlier, NC took to the streets on December 28 in all 165 electoral constituencies and on January 9 in all 330 provincial electoral constituencies successfully.
NC has been staging protests and preparing for a pre-announced midterm election together.
