‘Oli’s nationalism Iampasarbad’

Dhangadi, April 30

Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba today said Prime Minister KP Oli’s nationalism has turned lampasarbad (inertia).

Speaking at a press meet organised by Nepal Press Union in Dhangadhi airport today, Deuba said that he had talked about the promotion of Gauriphanta border point with India when he was prime minister. “But KP Oli did not take up the subject when he visited India,” he added.

Former prime minister Deuba said he had agreed to construct Dodhara-Chandani Dry Port and a bridge at Parsurampur in Dadeldhura during his New Delhi visit with India. “I have done much for the far-western region and I will discuss the same matter,” he said.

NC President Deuba said his party would be struggling for protection of democracy. “The Oli-led government has been trying to impose one party system in the country by weakening democracy,” he said.

Deuba said the NC has strongly opposed bringing the Money Laundering Commission and National Investigation Department under PM. “The government should not compel the Nepali Congress party to protest,” he said.

Deuba said everybody has to take responsibility for the NC’s defeat in the elections. “We could not win the elections as the party had expected because the two big communist parties formed an electoral alliance,” he added. Deuba said that there was no point in weakening cadres’ morale by taking up the issue of elections.

Deuba was in Dhangadi to inaugurate the newly constructed building of Durga Laxmi Multiple Campus at Attariya in Kailali.

Campus Chief Damber Pal said that Deuba would inaugurate the campus building tomorrow at 8:00am. Meanwhile, Deuba will be staying in his Dhangadi-based private residence.
