KATHMANDU: Leaders of opposition parties on Sunday claimed that the incumbent government has turned into the most corrupt one in the history of Nepal.
At a programme organised by the Reporters Club in the Capital, Nepali Congress leader Ram Sharan Mahat blaming the incumbent government of embezzling money from state coffers, claimed that UCPN-Maoist has transformed corruption into a respectable act.
On the occasion, NC leader Mahat also alleged that the UCPN-Maoist has paved the way for corruption by appointing employees aligned to them at the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA).
He also claimed that Maoist embezzled money meant for army integration by forging signatures.
Similarly, on the occasion, leader of CPN-UML Raghubir Mahaseth blamed the UCPN-Maoist leaders of benefitting by collapsing the nation’s economy.
Saying that the UCPN-Maoist should take responsibility of current corruption, he went on to say that if not, the general public will take action on them.
“Maoist has continued donation threat in the name of its General Convention. Business entrepreneurs are hit hard by the donation threats,” said Mahaseth.
Speaking on the occasion, Minster for Peace and Reconstruction, Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, blamed the opposition parties for accusing the government of corruption and donation threats due to their greed for the PM’s chair.
