Kathmandu, March 22
Nepal’s celebrated actor Karishma Manandhar has joined the CPN-UML on Tuesday. The UML chairman KP Sharma Oli welcomed her at a function in Kathmandu today.
Manandhar, in the past few years, has set an example by resuming her school in her 40s. However, her political career has not been successful.
Manandhar was a part of Baburam Bhattarai-led Naya Shakti Party in 2016. However, she did not continue it beyond a few months.
But, entering the UML today, Manandhar said she was committed to politics as it was the way to make the country better.
Karishma Manandhar also praised the leadership of Oli, saying he was the first reason why she joined the UML. She said she would not be tired of listening to Oli these days.
