Tensions at the polling station after Congress and UML cadres snatched chairs

In order to make the local elections free from fear, the Election Commission had strengthened various parties, but in some places there was a rift.  Some cadres of Nepali Congress and UML had vandalized the polling station of Oda No. 13 in Pachkhal Municipality of Karve District, which had caused havoc in the constituency.  There were 1,700 voters in the election held at Shri Ram Secondary School.  The election was called off after the ballot papers were torn.

In the run-up to the 30th of Baisakh, the election was marred by a rift between some leaders and activists.  After the Election Commission has given the election symbol to the candidates on April 3, they are expected to enter the field for 10 days.  The Election Commission has stated that the polling will be held from 7 am to 5 pm on April 12 after the end of the election campaign period and the two-day silence period.  Elections are being held in a single phase for 35201 posts at 753 local levels across the country. In an election with nearly 100,000 candidates, 15 million people are expected to cast their votes.  Only 6743 people will be elected as ODA chairperson, 293 mayors will be elected and the same number of deputy mayors will be elected.

The CPN (UML) has nominated Kesab Sthapit and Sunita Dhungol for the post of mayor and deputy mayor of Kathmandu sub-metropolis.  He was the first person to be accused of sexual violence. He was told by a journalist when asked about sexual violence that he could not be established if the man was not questioned.  He had said that it would rain.

In the last election, the UML had won 42% of the seats with 294 major and 321 deputy chiefs, while the Nepali Congress had won 326 seats with 266 major and 223 deputy chiefs.  The Maoists had won 15% of the seats, including the chief in 106 seats and the deputy chief in 111 seats.  The Federal Socialist Badi had won 4% of the seats, including 34 chiefs and 32 deputy chiefs, while the Rajpa had won 3% of the seats with 25 chiefs and 30 deputy chiefs.  Earlier, the UML and the Nepali Congress clashed, while the UML and the Maoists fought the election together.

The Maoists and the UML, who fought together in the past, are now fighting in a split.  He said that the UML candidate Kesab Sthapit will win in 2054 BS with 84,000 votes.  He said that the Nepali Congress candidate, the UML candidate is an expert in lying, so we should not talk like that.  He said that since Kesab Sthapit is developing everywhere, he has nothing else to do with Kesav Sthapit as he has young people with him.  Sthapit has said that he will win the coalition by getting double votes
