KATHMANDU, Feb 5: Demonstrations are continuing Thursday for a fourth day in four Tarai districts to protest the government decision not to set up Integrated Administrative Service Centers in the districts. Protests are continuing in Bardibas of Mahottari, Chandranigahapur of Rautahat, Harion of Sarlahi and Nijgadh of Bara as the places were chosen for setting up the centers that aim to provide government services to people without hassles. Transport in the districts remains disrupted due to the protests. A demonstration has been planned for Thursday afternoon starting from Nijgadh to Bardibas. A torch rally has been planned for the evening. Earlier, this week the government had postponed its decision to set up the centers in the districts after vehement protests by people from the district headquarters of the four districts.
