JHAPA: Former Industry Minister Mahesh Basnet on Wednesday praised Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli for his firm stand on the Madhes agitation and the blockade. “In fact, it was because of the firm stance of our prime minister vis-à-vis the Madhes agitation and the blockade that promoted nationalist sentiments in the heart of the Nepalis, which further served to embolden nationalism,” Basnet said. “Though there are some criticisms, it was due to the awareness of the government that the country was saved,” the UML leader further said. He also dwelt on the contribution of Nepali migrant workers to the national economy through remittance.
