Kathmandu, February 21
The executive chairman of the ruling Nepal Communist Party Pushpa Kamal Dahal has expressed his concerns over recent news reports about the leaders of his own party in various corruption cases.
Though Dahal has not named anyone explicitly, his statement comes one day after the party’s Gokul Baskota resigned as the minister for communications and information technology after being accused of negotiating a commission deal.
Speaking at a function in Kathmandu on Friday, Dahal said the communist leaders were also involved in various activities that could amount to the corruption of late. “Let you not understand more from my statement, but these days have not shown good signs of the future,” he said, “Just look around the incidents, the people are turning bad.”
