From the Constituent Assembly town (two pics)


New Baneshwar, the Constitution Assembly town in Kathmandu, looks like a battle zone. Riot police have overtaken the public spaces where on a normal day one would see people chatting over cups of tea.

The extended one-year tenure of the CA will expire on Saturday midnight. Embarrassed political class is busy in high-level talks that may see breakthrough on the 6-year old peace process. Frustrated citizenry and vested interest groups are looking for opportunities to penetrate into the restricted zone around the massive CA complex to express their anger.

No ‘action’ so far. Commuters and, thanks to active traffic policing, vehicles are moving fast.
