Kathmandu, July 21: The CPN (UML) has refuted the news that it has proposed to provide financial incentives to Upendra Yadav, Chairman of the agitating Federal Socialist Forum Nepal, to save the government.

The UML stated that the news, carried by an online news portal, which said UML general secretary Ishwar Pokharel and the Prime Minister’s Chief Political Advisor Bishnu Rimal offered Rs 520 million to Yadav asking him not to vote in favour of the no-confidence proposal against the government, was fictitious.

In a press release today, UML secretary and Chief of the Publicity Department, Yogesh Bhattarai made it clear that not even talk regarding political support has been held with the FSFN, leave aside financial incentive.

“There are so many differences on question of implementation of the constitution itself with the Madhesi Front or the Federal Alliance. It is not possible to include these parties on the topic of formation of the government or retention of the government with these differences still existing,” the press release states.

Bhattarai has urged all media to realise their professional responsibility and not disseminate baseless news. RSS
