Winner’s certificate sought

DHANGADI: Resham Chaudhary has demanded his victory certificate as a winner in the parliamentary election. As a Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal candidate, he had won from Kaiali Constituency-1.

He filed an application with the prison administration seeking the certificate on Tuesday. The prison administration sent the application to the regional election office in Kailali through the district administration.

According to Chief District Officer Govind Rijal, the regional election office sent them a Xerox copy of the certificate. “As the matter of providing the certificate doesn’t fall under our jurisdiction, we sent a Xerox copy to the regional election office,” he said. Regional Election Office Dhangadi Chief Mohan Prasad Aryal said his office had sent a Xerox copy to the DAO as it had sent the original copy to the Election Commission.

Chaudhary demanded that he be provided with the certificate now that he had made himself public.
