Kathmandu, April 23
Prime Minister and CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has criticised Nepali Congress President and main opposition leader Sher Bahadur Deuba for calling his India trip submissive.
Addressing a function organised at his party headquarters in Dhumbarahi of Kathmandu today, Oli said Deuba did not know what the word ‘submissiveness’ mean.
A sarcastic Oli said, “There are some people in Nepal… Maybe some people had termed someone’s India visit submissive. But now, he thought every prime minister’s India tour should be called the same.”
“And, there are poor cadres who are forced to repeat what their party President says.”
When Deuba paid a visit to India as the Prime Minister in August 2017, Oli’s UML had said he presented himself as submissive in front of Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.
According to Oli, Deuba’s logic was ludicrous and the whole world laughed at him.
In another context, he said he was accused of being authoritarian when he talked about developing the country and making it prosperous.
