It's suicide goal through match-fixing: Shankar Pokhrel

KATHMANDU: An influential leader of the Prime Minister's party CPN-UML has dubbed the CPN Maoist Centre's decision to withdraw from the coalition government as a suicide goal through match-fixing.

In a Twitter post, UML's Standing Committee member Shankar Pokhrel wrote: Maoist Centre has hit a suicide goal by fixing match against the nationalist alliance.

"Hope the rising national pride won't be incapacitated," he wrote in the tweet in Nepali.

राष्ट्रवादी गठबन्धन विरुध्द म्याच फ़िक्सिंग गरेर माओवादी केन्द्रले आत्मघाती गोल नि हानेछ । उठ्दै गरेको राष्ट्रिय स्वाभिमान चै थला नपरोस् ।
