Dolakha, September 9

Central Working Committee member of Nepali Congress Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat today accused CPN-UML of being a fake nationalist party.

Speaking at a party interaction held at the Dolakha headquarters of Charikot to mark late BP Koirala’s 103rd birth anniversary, Mahat alleged that UML Chairperson KP Oli had been trumpeting the slogan of fake nationalism to deceive the people and garner their sympathy.

Mahat said, “Only socialism advocated by late BP Koirala can do good to the country.” He added that NC was a nationalist party in the true sense.

The NC leader said, “Ranting on nationalism in the street does not make anyone a nationalist.”

He also claimed that his party would win a majority of seats in both provincial and parliamentary elections polls to be held later this year.
