POKHARA, Nov 9: There are altogether 5,881 voters in the mountainous district of Manang but more than 60% of them live outside of the district, according to candidates of various political parties.

With the election date inching closer, political parties have intensified their election campaigns. Reports say that they are reaching out to voters wherever they are- in their home or wherever they are working. However, such election hype does not seem to have gripped some districts- one of them is Panchthar. Locals of several villages and towns in Panchthar lament lack of election campaign related activities in their localities. Among other complaints, they reported to Republica that there is no feeling of elections in their areas yet. Here are some excerpts of what the locals shared with Republica:
