KATHMANDU, Nov 19: The movement of people returning home from the checkpoints of Kathmandu Valley for the election to the members of the House of Representatives and provincial assembly has increased sharply.
With only one day left to vote, the movement of travelers returning home from Koteshwar, Kalanki and Balaju in Kathmandu has grown significantly. Due to the fact that vehicles will not be allowed to drive from today midnight for the elections to be held on Sunday (tomorrow) on November 20, significant number of people are seen leaving the Kathmandu Valley today on Saturday.
Most of the voters, who were returning to their villages to cast their votes from Koteshwar in Kathmandu, said that the leaders have not fulfilled their promises and have not been able to carry out development works. They complained that they only provide for their relatives rather than for the development of the country.
Lal Bahadur Lama, a resident of Dhading, was waiting for a car in Koteshwar on Saturday morning as he was going to the district to cast his vote. He said that the leaders lured the people for elections but failed to develop the country as a whole.
Similarly, Bijay Chhetri of Kavrepalanchok said that in the upcoming elections, the capable youths should be given an opportunity to develop the country. Dissatisfied with the non-working style of the current political parties and leaders, he said that the hope of the country's development lies in the youth. Similarly, Ramji Khadka, said that it is necessary to win the youth who are capable of development. He is also dissatisfied with the current political parties and leaders.
Likewise, Gaurishankar Gautam of Kavrepalanchok district’s opinion is not different from the youth. He who is over 70 years old said that only the youth can develop the country now. He said that the country can develop only if the youth go to the place of leadership.
A large number of people were waiting for the vehicle to return to the village for voting in the Koteshwar area on Saturday morning. Some leaders of political parties were about to go to the village in the vehicles sent, while others were preparing to return to the village for the fundamental rights vote at their own expense.
Most of the people are looking for a leader who can advance the development work this time. They also requested to advance the development works of education, health, drinking water, roads, electricity etc. in their area.
