The two-day elections of camp management committee (CMC) of Beldangi and Sanischare camp have completed Thursday electing Sangchahang Subba from Beldangi and Pratap Subba as Camp Secretaries.
In today’s Beldangi election, 28-year-old Sangchahang secured 97 votes out of some 290 voters defeating five other candidates for the same post. He was serving as Chief of Camp Watch Team (CWT).
The outgoing Camp Secretary, Dhan Bir Subba, was his immediate contestant with 74 votes followed by Kumar Thapa (62 votes), Chandra Tiwari (32 votes), Rohit Mahat (23 votes) and Mon Bahadur Mongar (9 votes).
“My first priority includes making the camp environment more secure and peaceful for living,” Sangchahang told BNS over telephone.
“As a young secretary, I will have a lot of challenges in managing the camp. So, I need supports from every corner,” added he.
Man Dhoj Gurung and Binu Chhetri were elected Deputy Camp Secretaries for three Beldangi camps, the former to represent Beldangi-I camp.
While in Sanischare, veteran singer Pratap Subba has been elected the Camp Secretary. Subba has also served in the same post in the past.
Election officials from the government and UNHCR restricted mediapersons from entering into the election hall.
