Upendra Yadav spits venom against PM Oli

KATHMANDU: Chairman of the Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal, a major constituent of the agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front, Upendra Yadav, on Sunday accused the Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli of being irresponsible toward solutions to the ongoing crisis.

He said Oli was an 'extremist' and a 'stumbling block to resolution of the current problems'.

"The Prime Minister speaks like a don or a mafia of an alley," the Madhesi leader said without further explanation, "It does not suit well to the Prime Minister to speak an irresponsible language treating Madhesis like animals."

Yadav was speaking with journalists at an interaction at the Reporters' Club in the Capital today.

While the main opposition party, Nepali Congress, is also positive to meet genuine demands of the agitating Front, the Prime Minister has not paid any heed, he said.

"Responsibility should not be given to an irresponsible person," he said, adding that the government was involved in rife black marketing.

He said the Oli-led government would topple very soon regardless of whether it could solve the current problems.

Claiming that the government was irresponsible to solve the current crisis, the leader said the ongoing agitation would not end unless their demands were met.

On a different note, he said he was also sad to know mistreatment to the President Bidya Devi Bhandari, allegedly by the UDMF cadres, at the Janaki Temple in Janakpur on Wednesday.
