The phrase 'tyo pardaina' passes SC test


Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana led single-bench did not issue any interim order on a writ petition seeking scrapping of the May 14 oath of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

The writ was filed on Sunday by senior advocate Dr Chandra Kanta Gyawali and advocates Keshar Jung KC and Lokendra Oli on reasoning that the process was erroneous.

Dring the May 14 swearing-in ceremony held at Shital Niwas, PM Oli did not repeat 'I Promise (pratigya gardachhu)' after President Bidya Devi Bhandari when she twice asked the Prime Minister to so, instead pointing to her 'That isn't necessary (Tyo Pardaina)'.

The phrase 'Tyo Pardaina' has since become very popular on social networking sites, often used as memes, while many cartoons have been based on it too.

The hearing on the writ against the controversial oath of office and secrecy demanding re-swearing of the PM was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
