Maoists are withstanding their indefinite general strike in Nepal since last Saturday (May 1). The party cadres are now with sorts of weapons like lathis and stones, and eventually the Nepal bandh is turning into violence. In some of the places there are clashes between Maobadi cadres and local peoples againts the strikes.
This indefinite strike by Maoists is costing Nepal lots. Here’s what Maoists do it all – bandhs, strikes, and whatever they could do in Nepal for their leaders, in glimpses of pictures across various papers and magazines published in the country recently.
