Kathmandu, July 14
The main opposition CPN-UML has denied reports that it has included Nepal Rastra Bank Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari as M Adhikari in its finance and planning department.
The party’s central office secretary Bhishma Adhikari issued a letter to the central bank chief on Wednesday to clarify a public office holder cannot be included in the party department.
The letter, however, does not clarify who M Adhikari in the party’s finance and planning department is.
In the list of members of various central departments of the UML, made public on Tuesday, M Adhikari appears as a member of the party’s finance and planning department. Social media users have suspected he is Governor Adhikari himself as the address mentioned on the UML list matches his address.
Whereas Adhikari has denied the speculation on Twitter, the UML had not spoken about it officially.
