Jhapa, August 29

Federal Limbuwan Forum Jhapa has taken action against two of its leaders for involvement in financial irregularities in the past.

Following the defection of a huge number of party men, action was taken against the party’s District Working Committee Finance Secretary Umesh Uparkoti and First Secretary Gauriman Rai.

The party’s Jhapa district working committee announced the action at a press conference in Birtamod today, accusing them of irregularities involving huge amounts when they were in the financial committee during the party’s fifth Jhapa district convention.

“They had long defied the party’s call to submit details of the financial account of the party and had recently announced their defection from the party to wash their hands off the irregularities. We had to take action against them,” said FLF Jhapa Chairperson Dhan Bahadur Pangdhak.

The party has also given a seven-day ultimatum to the duo to submit the financial details.

The party has also taken exception to the rumours fanned by the two leaders through social networking site Facebook.

On the occasion, Pangdhak clarified that all of the 22 persons who had declared that they had left the party were not from the Federal Limbuwan Forum.
