KATHMANDU, Jan 18: A photo exhibition was organized in Kathmandu on Saturday coinciding with the 11th weeks of 'Occupy Tudikhel Campaign'.
The one-day photo exhibition entitled 'Let's not forget' was aimed at highlighting the historical and cultural significance of Tudikhel and raising voice against the ongoing encroachment upon public lands in the capital.
Last week, the campaigners had posted a banner at Khulla Mach calling the transportation entrepreneurs not to park their public vehicles near at the bus park near Tudikhel.
However, the administration removed the banner from the place and allowed using as the bus park. Nepali Congress leader Bhimsen Das Pradhan, who has been joining the campaign since its beginning, urged the people to raise voice against the public land encroachment at various places in Kathmandu including Tudikhel.
Due to various works including the relocation of the bus park, the space of Tudikhel has been shrinking over the past few years.
