Dang, Sept 14: Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba has claimed that there were not slightest possibilities for reinstatement of monarchy in the country.
At a press conference organised by Nepal Press Union, Dang on Saturday, Deuba reiterated that it was wrong to say that monarchy which was uprooted after a long struggle would come back again.
Deuba, also former Prime Minister, expressed his qualm about his name linked with Ncell tax evasion issue and wide-body aircraft scandal. “I have not heard the name of Ncell while I was the first person to raise issue surrounding wide-body aircraft and corruption,” he clarified.
On a different note, Deuba said that Butwal was declared the temporary capital of State 5 since Dang did not have appropriate structures required for the same.
“There are not good buildings in Dang. The Chief Minister of the state is from the district. One may ask him about this issue,” he explained.
Deuba demanded action against the culprits of Banke incident where NC’s Banke President and some cadres were recently beaten by an unidentified group of people during the second edition of NC’s nation-wide campaign.
“It is a grave incident. The culprits of this incident should be identified and be brought to justice at the earliest.”
