Students protesting the rise in the price of oil products are obstructing petroleum pumps across the country. The Alliance has been formed by ANNISU-Revolutionary, ANNFSU-Madhav Nepal Group, the Socialists and Students Union (Upendra Yadav), Akhil Sixth, and all Nepal’s Student Union (Nepal Students Union) to protest the rise in petro-products. They gathered at Thankot for a sit-in protest that began at 9:30 a.m.
However, because most pumps were delivered on Tuesday evening, today’s protest will not result in an immediate shortage of oil products.
According to the National Association of Nepal Petroleum Dealers, some petrol pumps in the Kathmandu Valley remained closed today due to student protests, while many dealers remained open. Students shut down petro dealers at schools and nearby schools, according to Leelendra Pradhan, Association Chairman.
