Service seekers have been affected after Nepali Congress padlocked the office of Mahashila Rural Municipality indefinitely from April 1. Dhan Prasad Gurung, chairman of the party's executive committee for Mahashila Rural Municipality, said that the NC padlocked the rural municipality office as the office of Rural Municipality had bypassed Nepali Congress in the decision-making process of the Rural Municipality.
