Deuba accuses govt of cheating people with lies

NAWALPARASI: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba on Sunday commented that the government was cheating people by spreading false assurances.

Speaking at a cadre training programme in Bhairahawa of Rupandehi today, Deuba said the government consisting major leftist forces of the nation was just in a bid to extend its term.

Maintaining that his party wanted to hold the local elections at the earliest, Deuba said the incumbent KP Sharma Oli-led government, however, did not want to hold the polls though it included the plan in its annual policy and programme.

Deuba reiterated that concerns raised by protesting parties should be resolved through talks and the Constitution could be amended for the purpose.

Other central and district level leaders of the party had also spoken at the function.
