Under pressure from Maoists, 39 district secretaries have submitted their resignations in Khotang. The letters await approval at the local development office. In a press release the secretaries said they were forced to quit because earlier this month rebels issued a statement threatening them with abduction, seizure of property, severe punishment and displacement. They have asked the Maoists to revoke the threats and to create an environment where they can work effectively.
