Kathmandu/UNI: Nepal police detained 30 activists to disperse an anti-government protest in the capital of Kathmandu, local media reported on Saturday.

According to the Kathmandu post 'The organiser of the protest rally called 'Enough is Enough' youth campaign, was opposing a weak governmental response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as corruption'

The protests broke out on June 9 following a massive hunger strike, which lasted for 12 days before the opposition movement signed an agreement with the government on July 7.

The 12-point agreement envisaged among others a wider use of polymerase chain reaction tests, a mandatory five-day quarantine for everybody arriving from foreign countries and transparency of COVID-19 spending.

“Enough is Enough” activists believe that the government has failed to fulfill its obligations under the reached agreement.
