UML con­demns Azad’s tweet

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

The CPN-UML has con­demned the con­tro­ver­sial state­ment of BJP par­lia­men­tar­ian Kirti Azad. Is­su­ing a state­ment, the For­eign De­part­ment of the rul­ing CPN-UML said that it was re­gret­table that In­dian law­maker Azad tweeted that ‘PM Modi should re­turn Janakpur, which was given to Nepal for 200 years un­der the Su­gauli Treaty’. “We con­demn the as­sault made on Nepal’s sovereignty, in­de­pen­dence, in­te­gra­tion and pride,” the rul­ing party said. It fur­ther said that the con­tro­ver­sial ex­pres­sion made by the BJP law­maker when the In­dian Prime Min­is­ter was in Nepal seemed to be mo­ti­vated with an ill in­ten­tion of pre­vent­ing the two coun­tries from hav­ing good re­la­tions. Sim­i­larly, district pres­i­dent of Dhanusha NC Saroj Ya­dav also con­demned the tweet.
