KATHMANDU: Amid threat from poll opposing 33-party alliance to thwart the electoral process and adopting violent means for disrupting the election, Chairperson of the Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi held discussion with Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) Gaurav SJB Rana about the state of security.

According to Regmi’s personal secretariat the meeting dwelt on the security strategy and management to make the November 19 polls successful. On the occasion, the army chief briefed Chairman Regmi about the latest security situation of the country.

Moreover, the meeting also decided to continue talks apropos to the security management so as to ensure the next elections to the Constituent Assembly within the stipulated time and free, fair and fearless manner. The government is mulling to mobilize army for providing security to election as the poll-opposing parties have warned of taking physical action against the candidates and officials involved in the electoral process.

During the meeting, General Rana briefed Regmi about his recent visit to England and also about the situation of security in the country. The meeting also stressed on the need to maintain security to ensure the people’s right to vote.

Gen Rana, with a three-member team, had left for the UK on September 6 at the invitation of British Chief of Army General Sir Peter Wall. He had returned from his UK trip on September 12. Although the political parties are continuing discussion with the poll-opposing parties to take them on board but they have also decided to go ahead for poll even without participation from 33-party alliance.
