KATHMANDU, FEBRUARY 11
Ram Kumari Jhakri has been reportedly summoned by Nepal Police to question her in connection to her recent comments on President Bidya Devi Bhandari, on Thursday.
The leader of the splinter group of Nepal Communist Pary (NCP) has been accused of resorting to character assassination of President Bhandari, in her recent speech in Gorkha.
Earlier, All Nepal Women's Association had handed over a memo to the Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs demanding action against her comments on the President.
Jhakri had recently broached the 'White Sari' issue, saying it was wrong to present Bhandari in a white sari during polls, at a recent public event. The Association said the comment had dishonored all the single women across the country.
Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa had pledged to ask the chief of Nepal Police to take Jhakri into custody.
However, Jhakri had, in Wednesdays mass gathering of Dahal-Nepal faction in Bhrikutimandap, appeared on the stage with her mouth taped in protest and said, "We are allowed to speak".
