Kathmandu, January 29, 2016:Â Aligned to Unified CPN-Maoist, the All Nepal National Independent Students handed over a four-point memorandum to chief district officers of all 75 districts.
As per the union, the memorandum was submitted in order to draw the attention of the CDOs to growing black-marketing of petroleum products and other essential commodities.
“If the state failed to take action soon enough, it would be difficult for it to control black-marketing in the days ahead,” said Ramesh Malla, president, ANNISU-R.
The demands of the ANNISU-R for the local administration were to control black-marketing of petroleum products and other essentials, ease supplies and bring down transport fare.
A concession of 45 percent on public transport for students was also included in their demands.
Kathmandu CDO Ram Krishna Subedi said, “Our office along with security personnel are taking action against black-marketeers.” He also added that the government has deployed all its mechanisms to control black marketing.
