situation in Nepal poor ahead of polls'

Kathmandu, Sept. 30 (PTI): A top parliamentary panel tasked to review the security situation in Nepal ahead of the November 22 polls today expressed concern at the prevailing law and order situation, terming it "poor" and inadequate for the successful conduct of the landmark democratic exercise.
The interim parliament's Constituent Assembly Elections Management and Monitoring Special Committee (CAEMMSC) today advised the government to increase the deployment of Nepal Police and the Armed Police Force throughout the country as the security situation was poor in the district for the elections.
The monitoring panel's report stated that the politicians were afraid to conduct their political activities outside the district headquarters due to the frail security situation in the country.
Stating that the law and order remains the main challenge ahead of the elections, the report has urged the government to pay special attention to control cross-border criminal activities in the districts in the Terai plains bordering India.
Separate parliamentary panels had recently assessed the security situation in the country. After compiling the findings of the parliamentary teams, the special House committee chaired by Speaker Subash Nemwang held a meeting today to release its report.
The special parliamentary team led by the chief whips of the ruling parties have been monitoring the security situation in all the five regions of the country.
The parliamentary special committee had dispatched special teams to acquire first hand information about the security situation amidst widespread concern about the frail security situation ahead of the landmark elections to form a body to frame a constitution and decide the fate of the 238-year old monarchy, the Kantipur online reported today.
