Pokhara, Nepal, November 6, 2019: Khemraj Poudel is going to contest the by-election from Kaski-2. The main opposition party Nepali Congress has on Wednesday decided to field Poudel for the by-poll, which is scheduled to be held on November 30. 
 
A meeting of the party’s office-bearers held at the residence of President Sher Bahadur Deuba at Budhanilkantha decided to nominate Poudel. Kaski-2 constituency has remained vacant after the demise of the then member of the parliament and Minister for Tourism, Culture and Civil Aviation Rabindra Adhikari in a helicopter crash in Taplejung on February 27 this year. 
 
Poudel will compete with Bidhya Bhattarai Adhikari, the widow of late Ravindra Adhikari though other fringe parties have also fielded in the by-election.
