The proposal to develop the Damak Municipality into a sub-metropolis by integrating the neighbouring Kamal Rural Municipality has been rejected by RPP and CPN UML.

The Rastriya Prajatantra Party and the CPN UML have expressed disagreement over the decision of the local government towards that end.

In a press statement today, RPP Kamal Rural Municipality chair Deepak Kharel accused the municipality of not consulting with all political parties and hurting the sentiments of co-existence while taking a decision on this matter. The decision was unilateral, he said.

Similarly, the CPN UML has also objected to the proposal to upgrade the municipality. As the party said, the municipality took a decision regarding the matter bypassing the voices of all political parties.

It may be noted that the recent meeting of the municipality decided to integrate the rural municipality and municipality to make a sub-metropolis. The municipality has already sent a letter to the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration for further action to execute the decision.
