Nov 26: The Nepali Congress' candidate Gyanendra Bahadur Karki, who is also the sitting Minister for Communications and Information Technology, has demanded impartiality in vote count, claiming electoral frauds in his constituency.
Karki is contesting for a seat in the House of Representatives from Sunsari -4.
“There were frauds in vote count in the constituency,” he said at an all-party meeting on Saturday evening. The meeting was called after representatives of the NC protested against the vote count claiming electoral frauds. As a result, vote count in the constituency has come to a halt. The NC claimed that 606 votes received by the party were added to the vote garnered by CPN-UML candidate.
Karki demanded resumption of the vote count only after investigating the matter.
The meeting was attended by Minister Karki, UML's candidate Jagadhish Prasad Kusiyat from the constituency and leaders of various political parties. (RSS)
