Biratnagar, November 4
Nepali Congress leader Shekhar Koirala says the incumbent government has already lost its moral high ground to continue ruling as it failed to protect life and property of its citizens.
Koirala accused the KP Sharma Oli-led government of trying to weaken democratic institutions and impose totalitarianism in the country.
Addressing a function organised in Biratnagar of Morang district on Sunday morning, Koirala said, “The government is currently trying to make judiciary, economic systems, army and media weaker.”
The leader claimed the government’s decision to keep money laundering investigation unit among other government bodies under the Prime Minister promoted corruption in the country.
“The judiciary is helpless. Media is facing interference. Now, the government’s target is army,” Koirala said, adding people’s trust in the judicial system was also decreasing accordingly.
In another context, Koirala claimed the state was trying to spare the murderer of a Nepali Congress cadre who died during a clash in Sarlahi last week.
