ITAHARI, Nov 25: Voters have started chanting slogans after Nepali Congress (NC) Vice President Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar delayed elections in Sunsari constituency no. 3 in the name of seeking consensus.

Gachchhadar postponed the date of the election scheduled for Thursday by asking the polling officials to do the same on the pretext of reaching a consensus for all positions. Voters started chanting slogans after the election was postponed due to Gachchhadar.

Slogans are being chanted at the polling station of Duhabi Stadium. Voters have chanted slogans demanding early voting. Although Gachchhadar tried to reach a consensus, it was not possible. 

Polling Officer Dev Narayan Yadav said that the candidates were not present at the polling booths even though the election committee was ready to hold the election. "Our election team arrived at 8 AM today with all the documents. How can we hold the election when there is no representative of the candidates?" he asked. Yadav said that the election could not be held due to absence of candidates.

Gachchhadar, who has been winning the election in every parliamentary and Constituent Assembly election since 2048 BS, has not been able to reach a consensus when he tried to select a suitable Central General Convention representative and regional president.
