Be wise before voting: CEC Yadav

Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhi Prasad Yadav has urged the voters not to be swayed after feasts and temptation in terms of exercising their rights to vote.

During an interaction with the people with disabilities (those suffering hearing impairment) at Dhulikhel on Sunday, CEC  Yadav said fear, threat and pressure could not be accepted during the election.

He assured that efforts would be made to ensure differently able people the chance of election observation.

“It is the responsibility of political parties to ensure reservation to the differently able people in the election system,” the CEC said, adding that this national election would strengthen democracy, republic and federalism.

According to him, the election would also pave way for future peace and prosperity.

The interaction was attended by 70 people suffering hearing impairment from 52 districts.

Chairperson of the Rastriya Bahaira Mahasangh, KP Adhikari, complained that the people suffering the hearing impairment were ignored in country’s policy. He demanded the State that they be provided the opportunity to become election observers.

During the program, they were instructed to ensure secure voting.
