SAPTARI, Sept 12: Saptari district was badly hit by floods last month. Tilathi, Hanumannagar, and Tirhut areas were the worst affected. As the displaced are still living in tents, it has become easier for political parties in pitching their candidacies.

It has been more than a month since the local representatives were elected. But unfortunately they have not made any visible progress so far and this has disappointed the locals. So far the representatives have not implemented any of their plans though they had made numerous promises before the elections

KATHMANDU, June 9: Parliament on Thursday amended a provision of the Local Level Election Act through a fast-track process, smoothing the way for the agitating Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) to participate in the second phase local polls scheduled for June 28.
