Daily life in the Kathmandu Valley and some other parts of the country have been affected by the ongoing shutdown on Tuesday (January 13, 2015).
Owing to the shutdown, separately enforced by the UCPN (Maoist)-led 30-party alliance and CPN-Maoist, schools, factories and means of transportation have remained closed. In some places, general public and passengers have been stranded on the way for no knowledge about the general strike.
Meanwhile, police arrested eight students of Trichandra Campus, who were enforcing shutdown, from the campus gate, said ANNISU-Revolutionary central member DB Saud as reported by MyRepublica.com.
On the other hand, the Tamsaling banda imposed by three-party alliance has affected normal life in Kavrepalanchowk district as well.
No long and short distanced vehicles leaving from Banepa and Dhulikhel are seen on the road due to the closure.
The main cities of the district including Banepa, Dhulikhel, Panchkhal, Dolalghat and Panauti have remained halted since the morning.
Though the shutdown enforcers have been pressing for shutdown, no any untoward incident has been reported so far, said Kavrepalanchowk Superintendant of Police (SP) Puja Singh.
Police have been mobilized in different places since early morning to avoid any riots.
