Sitaula is incompetent: Sujata

Biratnagar, June 15:

Nepali Congress central member and Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala’s daughter Sujata Koirala today said that the law and order situation had further worsened in the country after the Maoists joined the interim government

“Home Minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula has misled the country by giving the assurance that the security situation would improve once the Maoists joined the government,” she said.

“What else but the term crime should be used to describe activities of the Young Communist League?” she questioned, adding: “Such activities cannot be expected from any party.” Coming down heavily on the Home Ministry, she termed Sitaula “incompetent”.

Speaking at a training programme held by the Nepal Women’s Association here, she alleged the working style of the Home Minister was inept.

“During his term of office, law and order have collapsed. Probably, this is the weakest administration to date.” She said the Home Ministry did nothing but look on silently even when small groups were spreading terror.
