Meanwhile, UDMF cadres padlocked the offices of 17 local levels in Saptari District on March 19, reports The Himalayan Times. UDMF activists padlocked the offices of all municipalities and rural municipalities immediately after the offices opened. The padlock has hit regular work and preparation for civic polls.

Similarly, DDC and Rajbiraj Municipality have been padlocked for the past three days. Local parties, including the CPN-Maoist Centre and Nepali Congress have padlocked the office of Saptakoshi Rural Municipality saying that it was demoted from the status of municipality.

Subsequently, the meeting being held in the District headquarters Gaur was postponed. Acting Chief District Officer Anuj Bhandari, who was chairing the meeting, said the meeting was postponed after the UDMF representatives said they would not let any activity for polls happen in the District.

In the meantime, UDMF boycotted March 19's meeting of the Legislature-Parliament, reports Republica. They boycotted the meeting citing demand of constitution amendment, the major demand of the UDMF, was not addressed. With Speaker Onsari Gharti announcing the commencement of the meeting, UDMF –associated lawmakers stood up from their respective seats as a gesture of their protest of the session.
