Kathmandu, February 7
Ruling Nepal Communist Party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has claimed his controversial statement about the political crisis in Venezuela does not count now as the party’s secretariat meeting has already clarified the party’s official position over the issue.
Dahal’s recent statement follows Prime Minister and his party’s another chairman KP Sharma Oli’s view that Dahal committed a mistake in issuing the statement about the crisis in haste last month.
Speaking with journalists in his home district of Chitwan on Thursday, the former prime minister said, “I don’t know in what context the Prime Minister said so. But, the secretariat meeting, also attended by the Prime Minister, has issued a statement in the same spirit.”
“Now, it does not matter what an individual say.”
He also claimed that the statement of Nepal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs also carried the same spirit.
