At Maitighar, a group of medical students are staging a relay hunger strike demanding a safe study environment.
Students demanded the government to create a safe learning environment for medical students. The students complained against the colleges for demanding extra amounts or expulsion. The alleged colleges are Nobel Medical College, Biratnagar and Kathmandu Medical College, Kathmandu.
The students held “Don’t show reassurance, give an environment for reading” and “Create a safe learning environment’ placards.
The students complained about being threatened and mentally harassed for raising their voices against the extra fee earlier as well.
Along with the students, another protest was also demonstrated at Maitighar by a group of farmers demanding compensation for the DY-28 paddy damage.
