Salyan's ward chairman banned a local man from ward services


Karnali, Salyan, Bagchaur, Ward 4

A ward chairman of Salyan has banned a local from the service of the ward office saying that they have protested on social network Facebook. Prem Bahadur Pun, ward chairman of Baghchaur Municipality-4, has issued a statement on social media saying that he will not provide any service to the local Dil Bahadur KC from the ward office. Stating that KC's remarks were unwarranted, Ward Chairman Pun said in a press release on November 11 that KC will be deprived of all the services provided by the ward until his mistakes are rectified.

Pun alleged that KC in the social media referred to his work as a repression of the king. He further alleges that his character was assassinated on Facebook due to KC's confusing accusations with unnecessary words.
