Works of the Local Body Restructuring Commission are likely to be affected further due to disputes between the people and the representatives of the political parties.
Owing to the growing disputes over the local units fixed by an all-party mechanism, the LBRC has sent back the recommendation reports of 19 districts to the respective District Technical Advisory Committees.
The Commission returned the reports to the Technical committees of Jhapa, Morang, Sunsari, Panchthar, Taplejung, Khotang, Ramechhap, Rasuwa, Sindhupalchowk, Dang, Surkhet, Achham, Arghakhanchi, Baitadi, Bajhang, Gulmi, Humla, Banke and Dailekh to revise them on the basis of fresh inputs of the concerned stakeholders.
The Commission decided to this effect after the district level stakeholders registered their complaints to the reports submitted by the 19 districts.
The Commission is likely to send back reports of more districts as it has received complaints against the recommendation s made earlier.
By now the LBRC has received reports from 64 districts. All eight districts of Province No 2 and three other districts have not sent their reports as the agitating Madhesi parties are obstructing the meeting of LBRC in those districts.
Earlier, the government warned of taking action against the Local Development Officer of the concerned district if he fails to submit the report in time.
The disputes are sure to delay the works of LBRC that was formed in March to fix the number of local units, and the local elections can be impossible without fixing the units.
