The blatant use of force by the police on civic protesters on Monday has drawn criticisms from all sections of society. Politicians, civil society members, and general public have all condemned the administration’s crackdown on peaceful protests against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s move to dissolve the House of Representatives.
On Monday, hundreds of people had gathered under the ‘Brihat Nagarik Andolan’ banner and marched from Kamalpokhari towards Baluwatar in protest. The rally was intercepted by police while it was moving towards Baluwatar and the police used water canons and batons to disperse them.
Prominent faces of civil society — Dr Govinda KC, Mohana Ansari, Khagendra Sangraula and Narayan Wagle had addressed the rally which had writers, poets, artists, intellectuals and members of public in attendance.
