Dispute over the addition of fake voters protracts NSU election

Posted by Anup Baral August 14th, 2016 :
The holding of the election of the Nepal Students Union (NSU) under its 11th General Convention is likely to get delayed further, as some student leaders have come out in protest accusing the Direction Committee of adding some fake voters. Organizing a press conference today, seven candidates vying for the post of NSU President have accused the Direction Committee of publicizing the final name list of the representative voters at midnight on Saturday that includes 300 faked voters. The Direction Committee was formed by the NSU mother party-the Nepali Congress to oversee the elections. The protesting students have demanded correction to the voter's roll.

NSU student leader Dipak Bhattarai warned that the convention process would not proceed ahead unless there is correction to the voter's roll. However, a statement jointly issued by the Direction Committee's members Gobinda Bhattarai and Gururaj Ghimire said that the issue of the voter's name list has landed in a dispute as the process to select the names of voters was revamped.

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
