Dang, May 10
A CPN-UML candidate fighting for the post of chairperson of ward 17 of the Tulsipur sub-metropolitan city of the Dang district died on Monday night.
Following that, the Election Commission is preparing to postpone the voting scheduled to be held Friday there.
After he fell sick during electioneering, Lawari Chaudhary was taken to the Bheri Hospital in Nepalgunj twice. After the situation did not improve, he was taken to the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu.
Madhav Wali, the UML’s Tulsipur committee chairperson, says Chaudhary breathed his last during treatment.
Wali says preparations are underway to bring his body to Dang.
The 53-year-old leader was suffering from kidney and liver-related problems.
