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.
