KATHMANDU, Nepal - On Wednesday, members of the Youth Congress Nepal staged a protest in front of Singha Durbar, demanding the resignation of Finance Minister Janardhan Sharma.

Minister Sharma has been accused of tinkering with tax rates the day before delivering the budget to parliament. He is also accused of erasing CCTV footage that could have been used to prove unauthorized entry during budget planning.

Several young men were arrested during the protest for demonstrating in a prohibited area.
