Lalitpur, April 19:
The outgoing president of the Monastery Management and Development Committee (MMDC), Dr Yula Sherpa, has accused some persons of resorting to character assassination.
Organising a press meet today, Sherpa said the charge levelled against him â€” that he had invited The Dalai Lama to Nepal â€” was a propaganda.
â€œNonetheless, it will not be good to occupy the post and work for those who have plotted against me and to be under tremendous pressure all the time.â€
â€œThese charges were aimed at preventing me from carrying on with efforts aimed at promoting Buddhism in Nepal,â€ Dr Sherpa said.
Dr Sherpa said he had submitted his resignation on March 28.
The resignation was approved on April 15.
