Candidates strive to convince voters in Sindhupalchowk

Dolakha, November 5

Candidates from different political parties in Sindhupalchowk have complained about the limited time-period available for election publicity while canvassing for the upcoming elections in the district.

It is a challenging task for candidates to conduct publicity campaigns in many remote areas of the district. The candidates must reach Gumba of Jugal Rural Municipality, Golche, Bhotekoshi, Tatopani and Lishankapur rural municipalities in Constituency No 1 to convince voters. However, they have been able to organise election related activities only at Helambu, Bhotechaur and Indrawati rural municipalities for the election.

Parliamentary election candidate Mohan Basnet said it was impossible to reach most voters and talk to them. “But we have been trying our best to meet the voters and communicate,” he added.

CPN-MC leaders said management of internal communication had to be built between the left alliance candidates from CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre in Constituency No 1. Jugal, Balefi, Phulpingkot, Jalbire, Chautara and Batase, Kubhende, and Kadambas, among other surroundings, are strongholds of the left alliance.

NC candidate Mohan Basnet is expected to lead in Bhotekoshi, Sunkoshi, Tripurasundari, and Lishankhupur. Pashupati Shamsher Rana from the democratic alliance and Sher Bahadur Tamang from the left alliance are in for a tough fight in Constituency No 2.
