Life across Nepal began limping back to normalcy on Saturday, a day after Maoists called off their indefinite strike that had crippled the Himalayan nation for six days.
Shops and business establishments opened shutters and vehicles plied on roads. However, as Saturday is weekly holiday in Nepal, banks, schools and government offices remained closed.
The Maoists have, however, vowed to continue their agitation in a different manner.
“The six-day strike was just a rehearsal. If our demands are not met within May 28, we will resort to another strike,” said UCPN (M) chief Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’.
