KATHMANDU: Youths have yet again gathered in and outside Kathmandu to peacefully protest the incompetence displayed by the government in dealing with coronavirus crisis.
Independent groups of young people will be assembling in peaceful protests at various places across the country demanding that government take the accountability for taking right measures to contain the spread of the virus which has already infected thousands and caused the death of 15 people in Nepal.
The protests will be carried out following physical distancing protocol and other safety measures.
