KATHMANDU: An agreement has been reached between Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) and the activist known as “E.”
This breakthrough came during discussions held on Wednesday evening, resulting in a four-point accord. Following the formalization of the agreement, the protesting individuals have conveyed their decision to postpone all protest activities.
This announcement was made during a press conference held at 9 pm. One of the pivotal points outlined in the agreement is the commitment of the metropolis to promptly return goods that were confiscated from street vendors to their rightful owners.
It has been agreed that Kathmandu Metropolitan City will establish a study committee dedicated to the management of informal sector businesses.
This committee is slated to comprise representatives from the metropolis, developers, and government officials.
For nine consecutive days, “E” had been engaged in an ongoing protest in front of the Kathmandu Metropolitan City office, advocating for various demands, including the provision of alternative arrangements for pavement businessperson and street vendors.
