Kathmandu, April 24

The Nepal Students Union, the student wing of main opposition Nepali Congress, has launched protests against the government.

The organisation’s general secretary Deepak Bhattarai says five cadres of the organisation have gathered in each of the major places of the country. Today, they staged protests against the government move to issue two controversial ordinances.

Though the nationwide lockdown enforced to control the outbreak in the country is still in effect, the NSU managed to stage the protests.

Bhattarai says the protests will continue unless the government withdraws the ordinances.
