There were no people’s representative in local levels for 20 years and the local people consider that because of this gap there wasn’t any development in local area of Nepal.
Now most of the local people are positive about the development of Nepal. The local election was very special for the Nepalese people. The local leader said this is the practice of new constitution formed by Nepalese people. The local elections attracted every Nepalese due to the power decentralization. The local people are very happy because they can get more budget and most of the government documentation from the local office.
