Chairman of CPN (UML) KP Sharma Oli has commented that they are trying to discredit UML in the case of fake Bhutanese refugees.
In a two-day training program for local people’s representatives that started today at the UML party headquarters, he said that UML was not involved in the case of fake Bhutanese refugees, saying that they were trying to blame UML.
“UML is not involved in such matters. UML always opposes corruption”, he said, “UML is in favor of cleanliness, transparency and good governance. But they tried to defame UML.” He said that the parliament was blocked because the MPs of the ruling party said baseless, untrue and misleading things against the UML in the parliament. “What was said in the parliament should be confirmed. There is no possibility of confirmation”, he said.
President Oli said that the party is now under siege from all sides. “Some people have joined the business of making Nepalis Bhutanese and sending them abroad. Who is involved in it now? “I don’t want to say that there is a case in the court”, he said, “But all the blame for the Bhutanese refugee case was tried to be put on the UML.”
He accused him of forcing people close to him to name him in the statement in the case of fake Bhutanese refugees. “They are trying to smear, write and smear people close to me”, he said, “Many kinds of mudslinging and accusations are being made against the UML.”
He accused the government of not taking action against those who attacked him physically. He asked the representatives of the local level to act like the representatives of the UML. “I urge you to move forward like UML in all manners, habits, behavior, style”, he said, “We must achieve success through work.”
On the first day of the training, which will be conducted until tomorrow, Shishir Kumar Dhungana, former secretary of the Government of Nepal, discussed the scope of work at the local level, prioritization of programs and budget formulation, Bimal Pokharel, the former executive director of the National Federation of Village Associations of Nepal, about good governance, service delivery and manpower management at the local level, resource mobilization at the local level, alternative investment and Sushil Gyawali, former executive officer of National Reconstruction Authority, gave training on development management.
83 city chiefs and 115 deputy chiefs and 123 rural village presidents and 126 vice presidents are participating in the training.
