Maobadi, Hamro Vote Firta Le (Return Back Our Votes)

That’s one of the many slogans that angry people are chanting on the streets of Kathmandu today. I can hear them as I am typing these lines. They are protesting the abduction, torture and killing of Ram Hari Shrestha, a local resident of Koteshwor.

Some other slogans are:

>Hang Prachanda to death
>Down with killer Prachanda
>Down with Maoist
>Jhakku Subedi, hamro vote firta le [Return back our votes, Jhakku Subedi] JS is a Maoist candidate who won from Kathmandu-2 in CA polls. Koteshwor falls in Ktm-2.]
