Earlier in a statement, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) President Oli Ahmad (Vir Bikram) said, “My request to the leaders and workers of LDP at all levels and countrymen is to coordinate with the agitating parties in their respective areas and make the blockade program successful on Wednesday and Thursday on November 8 and 9.” He also said, I express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the people of the country for successfully observing the blockade with sincerity on November 5 and 6. Kindly observe the programs with us in the coming days in an orderly and peaceful manner. This government must be dismissed.
