The election buzz has caught on even in remote parts of west Nepal. Locals in Karnali have high expectations from the CA polls.
Some expect new roads, others easier access to electricity, water and phone lines, but they understand that their voices will only be heard if they choose a capable candidate.
Most women do not know what the CA poll is or what it is for. Some believe it is like a magic wand that will make sickness and food scarcity vanish.
Badamkali Mahatara, chairman of Laxmi Co-operatives in Jumla says, "I have started convincing women to vote for the party that has taken women's issues and is likely to see them through."
