Show disrupted



ITAHARI - Maoist cadre here on Tuesday disrupted the photo exhibition, People After War, saying it showed their activities in a poor light. They threatened the head of the municipality that had let out its cultural centre for the exhibit and tried to prevent visitors from going in. However, 25,000 people from all walks of life waited hours in line to see the exhibition, which depicts how the relatives of the victims of the conflict are getting on with their lives. "This exhibition is one-sided," Maoist Itahari in-charge Mukti Rijal told local organiser Ganesh Niraula of the Youth Media Centre, "you better stop this program or else." The Maoists said the pictures in the exhibit would "contaminate the minds of innocent school-children". However, Maoist regional in-charge of Sunsari-4 Manoj Shrestha said it was not his party's intention to stop the exhibition.
