Nepal-India border in Dhanusha to be sealed

2022 Nov 13, 13:42, Janakpurdham

The Nepal-India border in the Dhanusha district will remain sealed off in view of the upcoming elections to the House of Representatives (HoR) and the Province Assembly (PA).

The border will get cordoned off 72 hours before the voting on November 20, considering the possible security threats during the polls, said Chief District Officer, Dhanusha, Surendra Paudel.

A joint meeting of security officials of both countries at Jainagar in Madhubani district in India took a decision to this effect.

The meeting also discussed issues of people's mobility across the border, encroachment, and management of the no man's land, the internal security of both Nepal and India, and the smuggling of narcotic drugs and alcohol illegally, he said. The meeting was led by Paudel on behalf of Nepal, and District Magistrate, Madhubani, and Arvind Kumar Verma from the Indian side.

Meanwhile, approximately 10 percent of the total votes were invalid in mock voting organized here in Janakpurdham Sub Metropolitan City-14 targeting the upcoming HoR and PA elections. Out of the total 55 votes cast, approximately 10 percent were invalid, said Samjhana Kumari Raut of the Samagra Bikas Sewa Kendra, a local organization that organized the vote as part of the voters' education program
