"It is necessary to complete the peace process initiated by Girija Babu (Nepali Congress president and Prime Minister, the late Girija Prasad Koirala) and CPN (Maoist Center) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda'. So, this alliance is not only for winning the local election , it is required for peace and development," he said.
Voters in Achham district are in confusion over how to cast vote in the upcoming local-level elections. That’s because they haven’t been taught that by the concerned authorities yet. Unaware about the right way to vote, many voters there fear that their votes may turn out to be invalid. Even the candidates who went on a house-to-house campaign to request for votes also did not tell them how to cast their votes, said the locals.
Election atmosphere in Dhangadhi, the only sub-metropolitan city in the Sudurpaschim Province, is heating up. As it is also the temporary capital of the province, everyone's attention is focused on Dhangadhi. Top leaders from across the political spectrum have started visiting the place to solicit votes for the candidates of their respective parties and factions. Nrip Bahadur Oad of the Nepali Congress, Rana Bahadur Chand of the Communist Party of Nepal (UML), Bindra Air of Rastriya Janata Party and Basanta Bishwokarma of the Lokatantrik Samajwadi Party are contesting for the vital posts in the sub-metropolis.
Candidates who have registered their nominations in the local level elections have started reaching the farms in the villages asking for votes. Candidates have intensified their election campaign by urging people to vote for them.
