Share investors launch protest programs

The share investors’ pressure group has unveiled a series of protest putting forth various demands. Their demands include reforms in the capital market, protection of investors’ investment and creating environment conducive for investment.

As part of the protest programs, share investors have staged a hunger strike from Monday at the office of the Nepal Stock Exchange (NEPSE). They have already been in a relay strike since the past eight days. “We are forced to launch protest programs as the government fails to hear and address our demands,” said the pressure group’s coordinator Hari Dhakal.

The protesters have also accused a taskforce formed by the government under the leadership of Deputy Governor of Nepal Rastra Bank Shiva Raj Shrestha of ignoring their demands.

They have also drawn the attention of the government to bring necessary act, regulations and laws for the greater interest of the capital market.

The taskforce is said to be preparing to submit its report to Finance Minister Dr Yuba Raj Khatiwada.
