30 June, Kathmandu
More than 300 taxi drivers staged a demonstration in Kathmandu on Tuesday morning demanding they are also allowed to operate.
Though the government has allowed private vehicles, taxis have been restricted as other public transport vehicles. So, the taxi drivers say that they are ready to operate the cabs adopting safety measures.
They said that they were expecting some decision to address their concerns from the cabinet meeting on Monday evening, but they were resorted to protest after the meeting decided to continue the existing model until July 22.
