Nepalis in US stage demonstrations against blockade


Nepalis living in the United States on Sunday staged protests in Washington DC, the US Capital, against the unofficial blockade imposed by India at the Indo-Nepal border points.

Organisations representing Nepali diaspora had staged protests in front of the White House from 11 am to 3 pm.

As many as 4,000 Nepalis were present in the protest and it was the largest demonstration carried out by US-living Nepalis.

The protesters also staged a rally from the White House to the US-based Indian Embassy.

Meanwhile, Association of Nepalis in America would submit a memorandum to the US President Barack Obama urging him to speak against the blockade.

The protesters claimed the blockade was against Nepal’s transit rights as a land-locked nation and related international trade laws and treaties.

Earlier in November, Nepalis in the United Kingdom had staged a large protest in front of visiting Indian PM Narendra Modi.

Nepali communities living in other nations as well have staged protests in various parts of the world.
