Dhangadi, May 9

Going against the ruling coalition, CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has asked the people of the Kailari rural municipality in the Kailali district of Sudurpaschim to vote for a rebel candidate.

Speaking at an event on Monday, Dahal asked the people to vote for Laju Ram Chaudhary and Laxmi Satgauwa for the positions of the chair and vice-chair of the rural municipality respectively.

“They have done good work in the past, and I believe they will continue to work for the betterment of the rural municipality,” said Pushpa Kamal Dahal.

But, as per the agreement within the coalition, the chair of the rural municipality was given to the Maoists while the vice-chair was given to the Nepali Congress. But, when Satgauwa gave in her name as a rebel candidate things got interesting.  

She did not want to cave in because she served as the vice-chair of the rural municipality until she resigned a few weeks ago to contest the election.

Pushpa Kamal Dahal did not condemn Satgauwa as he believed that the purpose of the coalition was not to bow down to anyone.

“How the coalition will happen isn’t clear, that is why I don’t want to stop anyone. I believe our supporters will vote for our candidates and we will win,” he said.
