KATHMANDU, July 21: Former Chief Justice Sushila Karki accused the government of being intolerant while Khagendra Sangraula questioned what kind of socialism the government was batting for. Karki added that if the government continued to turn a deaf ear to KC’s demands, a wave of protest would erupt across the country.

“The government must meet the demands of Dr. Govinda KC otherwise a wave of protest will erupt across the country,” Karki said adding that the KP Sharma Oli led government was entangled in a web operated by mafia and contractors. “The government must wake up to the pleas of Dr. KC and stay away from mafia,” she said.

Karki also condemned the price hike in internet and telecommunication despite its ability to connect people and communities while improving access to information. “When prices for communication means are decreasing across the world, our government is doing the opposite.”

Meanhile, Sangraula said that the mafia rule must end in the country. “The leaders are batting for socialism, but this is not the way!”

Likewise, clashes between police and protestors erupted during the protest. Police have baton charged at protesters and thrown teargas. A vehicle of a minister was damaged by protestors.
