KATHMANDU: The mistreatment of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Standing Committee member Surendra Pandey has drawn flaks from several quarters.
NCP leaders have strongly condemned the incident demanding to take necessary action against those behind the incident behavior.
Meanwhile, responding to the incident, NCP Spokesperson Narayankaji Shrestha said that the incident would not benefit anyone.
He said, “The incident of deliberate mistreatment at a party function in Rapti Municipality in Chitwan district today is highly reprehensible. Encouraging such behavior does not benefit the communist movement, it does not benefit anyone.”
Earlier, senior leaders Jhalanath Khanal and Madhav Kumar Nepal had issued statements condemning the incident.
Cadres close to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had mistreated leader Pandey at the ‘Meeting and Training’ program of the NCP Chitwan Rapti Municipal Committee on Saturday morning.
While Pandey was speaking at the program, a group of 15/20 people from outside the committee had entered the meeting hall and stopped Pandey from speaking by sloganeering.
They had accused leader Pandey of making a wrong statement against Prime Minister Oli and supporting a faction.
