The widespread use of India-registered vehicles in Nepal’s Nov 19 constituent assembly election campaigning, particularly in the southern plains close to the Indian border, has created a furore in the country.

Against the directives of local administration and district security officials, candidates and political parties, mostly of Madhes-based parties in Nepal, have been using such vehicles .

Using Indian vehicles for any kind of election purpose is against the election code of conduct.

To avoid any untoward incident, the Nawalprasai district administration has asked parties and candidates not to use such Indian vehicles and instead get temporary registration from security agencies.IANS
