In the local level elections, political parties will not be allowed to use government vehicles in their election campaigns. Khagendra Bharti, information officer at the district administration office, said that the use of government vehicles for the programs of representatives of any political party and candidates has been banned as the election-targeted code of conduct has been implemented. It has been stated that necessary action will be taken to control the vehicles as soon as possible.

The office has been found to have defied the request to surrender arms. Due to the local level election to be held on May 13, it was requested to all weapon holders hand over the licensed weapons by mid-April. Information Officer Bharti said that not a single person surrendered their weapons during that period.

 Of the nearly 1,000 licensed firearms in the district, including Barbour, Eknale and Duinale guns, 251 of them were deposited in the administration during the conflict. He said that all kinds of weapons should be handed over to create a credible, safe and fearless election environment. Information Officer Bharti said, "We are waiting for the order of the Home Ministry on what to do with those who do not surrender arms. We will take action accordingly." It is said that action will be taken after conducting a search as the weapons were not handed over within the stipulated time.

 It is feared that the non-accumulation of arms will affect the peace and security of the election. Deputy Superintendent of Police Ramesh Pal said that action would be taken against those who did not submit the information. He said, "We have already requested for surrender of arms. Those who do not surrender should face legal punishment."
