Tanaun : Top leaders have joined an election campaign in favor of Nepali Congress candidate Govinda Bhattarai from the ruling alliance in Tanahun Constituency 1.

Prachanda, who reached Tsum Valley of Gorkha on Wednesday morning to address a program at a monastery, left for Tanahun by helicopter.

Congress president Deuba has reached Tanahun directly from Kathmandu.

Dr Swarnim Wagle who quit NC to Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) is contesting the by-elections from Tanahun 1.

The top leaders have reached there to challenge Wagle.
