A press release issued by EC Spokesperson, Surya Prasad Sharma, stated that Chief Election Commissioner Dr Ayodhi Prasad Yadav directed stopping the rally immediately after CEC Yadav noticed motorcycle rally in course of on-site monitoring.

Meanwhile, the EC said that its serious attention has been drawn towards polling survey being conducted by setopati.com – an online media – with question ‘who you vote and why in the Kathmndu Metropolis?’ against election code of conduct.
