KATHMANDU, June 24: Tilak Koirala, who had been staging a fast unto death protest, demanding reforms in and expansion of the share market in Nepal, broke his strike following a 19-point agreement reached between the agitating share investors and Security Board of Nepal (Sebon) on Friday.
Koirala, on behalf of the agitating share market investors, had begun his fast unto death protest 10 days ago. The 19-point agreement has been signed by Ramesh Kumar Hamal on behalf of Sebon and Koirala on behalf of the agitating share investors.
They have also agreed to form a committee comprising representatives of both the sides to ensure smooth implementation of the 19-point agreement. The committee includes Acting Executive Director Binaya Dev Acharya and Mukti Nath Shrestha from SEBON and Rohan Karki and SP Chaulagain from the agitating share investors’ group.
On Tuesday, Sebon organized a press conference to express its commitment to address the genuine demands put forth by the agitating investors. However, the agitating share investors’ group had given continuity to their protests alleging that Sebon was not yet ready to meet their demands.
