Locals of Shuklagandaki Municiplaity-7 have launched protest against the move of Surya Nepal Pvt for resuming manufacturing despite lockdown order.
The company has continued its manufacturing even in the ongoing lockdown. Locals protested that the possible outbreak of COVID-19 could maximize the threat to locals while continuing the manufacturing with the import of the raw materials from other districts.
The locals are in protest rally since Wednesday demanding to halt the works.
A local Kisan Gurung shared that they came in protest after the company started importing raw materials from other districts at night, violating the lockdown.
However, the Manger at the company Baburam Karki said that they started production owing to possible loss of stocked raw materials. He also claimed that safety measures were adopted while continuing the works in the company.
