KHOTANG, April 26: Teachers affiliated with different political parties have started tendering their resignations in a bid to open legal way for contesting the local polls slated for May 14.

Even though most of them have shown a desire to contest the local polls for the position of chairperson of Municipality and Rural Municipality, some of them have indicated their interest in contesting the local elections for the position of the chairperson of Ward Committee of Municipality and Rural Municipality.

Though most of them decided to resign from their post after the party they belong to assured them of its nomination of their name as a candidate, some have ventured to resign to pressure their party to get their name nominated as a candidate in the upcoming local polls despite uncertainty over the possibility of them being nominated.
