Amid the ongoing political turmoil in Nepal, a provincial lawmaker from the opposition Nepalese Congress has threatened to kill Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. The leader of the Nepalese Congress Narottam Baidya, who made the threat, is an MP from Bagmati province. He criticized the recent expansion of Prime Minister Oli’s cabinet, calling it unconstitutional. Meanwhile, Netaji’s anger grew so much that he threatened to kill Prime Minister Oli himself.
MP mentioned Nathuram Godse
Baidya raised his hand in the air and said that Oli was proceeding in such a way that he compromised all aspects of governance to stay in power and save his chair. If we leave Oli, the country will fall. Referring to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin, Nathuram Godse, he called for saving the country. He said if no one is ready then I will.
Oli’s party reacted strongly
Political unrest in Nepal escalated after the MLA threat. The MP’s statement was also criticized by his own party, the Nepalese Congress. Apart from that, the party of Oli CPN (UML) called for action against the MLA. Nepalese Congress spokesman Bishoprakash Sharma asked Narottam Baidya to withdraw his statement on Friday evening.
