Communist rule has begun in the country: Shekhar KoiralaNepali Congress central leader Shekhar Koirala has remarked that a “typical communist rule” has begun in the country.
Nepali Congress central leader Shekhar Koirala has remarked that a “typical communist rule” has begun in the country.
Addressing a press conference organised by Nepal Press Union Chitwan chapter in Narayangarh on Tuesday, leader Koirala alleged that the attempt to bring state bodies including the Office of Attorney General under the Prime Minister is part of the plan to give free reins to the government.
“The government has started capturing the judiciary. Now the attempt to impose censorship on the press is on the cards. This is authoritarianism,” said Koirala.
He claimed the new system requiring the justices to get approval from executive before embarking on a foreign visit suggests that the judiciary has come under the government. “This is the beginning of typical communist rule,” he said.
On a different note, leader Koirala said the Nepali Congress should hold the 14th General Convention by amending the party statute. “The General Convention should not be held by the current representatives and party central committee. Instead, let’s hold the 14th General Convention by amending the statute,” he said. He also expressed his desire to take the party leadership from the upcoming general convention.
