Maoists call off general strike

The Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) has called off the weeklong Nepal bandh general strike with effect from February 09, 2006. With the withdrawal of the general strike, vehicular movement across the country has resumed.

Meanwhile, the travel trade related associations and organisations have welcomed the move. Calling the withdrawal of Nepal bandh a welcome step, Trekking Agents Association of Nepal (TAAN) has called on one and all not to carry out the activities having adverse impact on the country's tourism sector.
