Kathmandu, May 2: Protesting the slow pace of action of the seven parties alliance in taking action against those who supressed the peoples' movement and bringing the army under the control of the parliament, students warned leaders to go for a republican system.

Students, with sticks in their hands, chanted slogans in favour of a republic and against King Gyanendra in front of the Singhdurbar this afternoon.

They also destroyed the message boards of King Gyanendra.

The students wrote ''Republic Nepal hi hi, Gyane thief bye bye' in the statue of late King Prithvi Narayan Shaha, in front of the Central Secretariat. They also painted Republic Nepal Government in the pillar of the statue.

They brandished sticks and keys, as a symbolic warning to the leaders to meet the demands of the people, saying that they can close Singhdurbar if the government does not make drastic change in the state affairs.

The area was a restricted zone for political protest in the past but the students stood in front of the gates without any interference from the security forces.

Shouting slogans against the monarachy, they brought the traffic to a grinding halt.

The students warned the leaders not to make any mistakes at a time the 'regressive forces are trying hard to raise their heads.' They also took out protest rallies in Tribhuvan University area in Kirtipur with sticks in their hands today and warned the leaders to work according to the expectation of the people.
