Thousands of passengers were stranded across Nepal on Monday as transport operators called for an indefinite strike. They locked public buses and other vehicles in garages demanding a 35 per cent hike in transport fares after recent increases in fuel prices. The government has allowed them only 25 per cent hike. According to other people, the Nepali government should speak to all concerned parties before making decisions over price rise caps.
