Govt. con­demns Raut

People's Review - - MEDIAWATCH -

Kath­mandu, 14 May: Min­is­ter for For­eign Af­fairs Pradeep Ku­mar Gyawali has con­demned the state­ment made by Prov­ince 2 Chief Min­is­ter Lal­babu Raut dur­ing a civic fe­lic­i­ta­tion pro­gramme in hon­our of vis­it­ing In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi that they were strug­gling ‘against the dis­crim­i­na­tory con­sti­tu­tion’. The state­ment that Raut de­liv­ered in Janakpur on Fri­day has sparked a con­tro­versy in the po­lit­i­cal sphere. As law­mak­ers speak­ing at the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives meet­ing to­day sought the gov­ern­ment’s re­sponse over the state­ment, Gyawali said the gov­ern­ment also con­demned Raut’s act as it was solely Nepal’s in­ter­nal af­fair.
