Transport strike cripples life in eastern Nepal
font size    

Life in Nepali eastern region came to a halt as transport workers staged a region-wide strike, a leading newspaper, The Himalayan Times, reported on Monday.

Both short and long-distance vehicles remained off the road, the report said.

According to the daily, thousands of passengers were stranded at different places. The transport strike brought life to a halt in Morang, Jhapa, Sunsari, Siraha, Saptari, Dhankuta, Panchthar, Ilam and Udayapur in the region.

Accusing the police of trying to frame a bus driver on the charge of deliberately killing a cyclist, the transport workers announced the strike.

A meeting held Sunday between transport entrepreneurs, representatives of workers' union and government officials at the eastern regional traffic police office in Itahari, some 400 km east of Kathmandu, failed to find a way out of the deadlock.
