Dhangadhi, September 18

The District Administration Office, Kailali, has stepped up security in the district keeping in view possible protests by agitating groups on Sunday, the day the new constitution would be promulgated.

Organising a press meet, the district administration said it had made tight security arrangements keeping in view recent tensions in the district.

Chief District Officer Mohan Chapagain said his office was taking feedback on the law and order situation in the district from all stakeholders. As the leaders of major political parties have urged all their cadres observe Dipawali to celebrate the new constitution on September 20, the agitating Tharuwan/Tharuhat Struggle Committee have announced that they would observe the day as a “black day.”

Chapagain urged all to support the local administration in maintaining social harmony in the district. “The rights, property, life and prestige of everyone should be ensured,” he said.

Far-western region chief of police DIG Madhav Nepal said he had stepped up security in the entire region, including Kailali. “Security has been beefed up in the region in view of security challenges before and after the announcement of the new constitution,” said DIG Nepal.

As per the new security strategy, personnel from four national security agencies, will be jointly mobilised in the region to maintain law and order.

Similarly, the security agencies discussed with civil society and representatives of political parties security management in Tikapur to avoid any untoward incidents.

Meanwhile, the curfew imposed by the local administration in Dhangadhi and Tikapur areas continued on Friday.
