Kathmandu, Feb 28: Various political parties of Nepal have intensified their electoral campaigns with great enthusiasm all across the country following the nomination of their candidates under first-past-the-post for the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) election on April 10.
The major political parties including the Nepali Congress, CPN, UML and Maoists have filed candidates from all the 240 constituencies while others over 30 parties have also filed the candidacy partially. There were reports of mass meetings and visiting the voters in their houses in different parts of the country. Despite the agitation in some districts of Terai, the election campaign has intensified with mass meeting in an enthusiastic manner, local media reports said.
Following the parties' activities, locals here in the district seem to have come to the conclusion that CA elections would not be deferred again this time.
''I think the elections will be held this time as political parties have done their best to persuade the people to vote,'' local newspaper quoted a Sher Bahadur Shahi as saying.
Similarly, more than 300 trainers have been working tirelessly in Sunsari district in eastern Terai to make the locals aware about CA polls.
The election was postponed twice in June and November. The election is very important as the elected representatives would decide the fate of 240 year old monarchy which has been suspended at present.
