Butwal, August 19
The main opposition leader in Parliament has accused the Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli-led government of turning anti-democratic.
Speaking at a party function in Bhairahawa of Rupandehi district on Monday, former prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba said some recent activities of the government made it clear that it was anti-democratic, warning his party could launch a street protest against the government anytime.
He said recent bills introduced by the government to operate the proposed Media Council and the National Human Rights Commission were not democratic in nature. According to him, the government was trying to put the NHRC under the attorney general.
“The government is gradually snatching away rights from the people,” he said, “I had told you much earlier that the government would not let you speak.”
Meanwhile, Deuba and the party’s senior leader Ram Chandra Paudel expressed their dissatisfaction with each other during the function.
