27 Nov, Beni, Myagdi : The local people who have cast their vote in the November 26 elections, the first after the then Maoist decade long insurgency, have demanded sustainable peace, stable government, development and prosperity.
They have suggested focusing on economic prosperity and development activities instead of fighting for only power.
The two phase elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies (polls scheduled for November 26 in 32 mountain and hill districts in first phase, and for December 7 in the remaining districts in the second) for national and provincial parliaments are expected to end the longstanding political instability and political turmoil, and carry out development activities.
“The country has seen many systems of government changed over time. I cast my vote many times. However, there is not any tangible change seen in the lives of people, nor there are development activities,” said 96-year-old Rana Bahadur Subedi, who exercised his franchise from Hamshabahini polling centre in Beni Municipality on November 26 polls.
Now the elected representatives should focus on prosperity and development, he said.
Likewise, another voter Rupa Sapkota asked the people’s representatives to emphasise development.
