Kathmandu, February 27
A lawmaker of the ruling Nepal Communist Party has commented that the white paper that the government recently published to make public details about the properties owned by Nepal Trust also contains a lot of lies, hence it cannot be called a ‘white paper’.
Speaking in a House of Representatives meeting on Thursday, Janardan Sharma questioned why the trust chairman, Deputy Prime Minister Ishwar Pokharel, ignored some basic facts while preparing the paper.
Sharma said the government mentioned in the white paper that the government under Sher Bahadur Deuba’s leadership decided to give a land plot in Tahachal to the controversial Tamsherku Trekking, on October 30, 2017. Sharma, the then home minister, has also been named as a person responsible for the decision as he was chairing the trust then. However, he was already removed from the position on October 16, he claimed.
Sharma suspected that many people who could have been involved in the decisions might have been spared.
“I don’t surrender to the lies, neither do I fear it,” he said.
