Kathmandu, June 9
Police on Sunday suppressed locals of Kathmandu who gathered at Maitighar Mandala of Kathmandu to stage a demonstration against the Guthi Bill that the government is planning to endorse through Parliament.
Stakeholders and local activists have been protesting the bill recently registered in the Federal Parliament claiming it would keep traditional community organisations called ‘guthi’ and properties owned by them under the control of government. They have accused the government of trying to create a new place to recruit their cadres through the bill.
While some locals staged the protest raising such concerns this afternoon, police used water cannons and charge them with batons.
