KATHMANDU, March 3: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Bimalendra Nidhi clarified that he did not make any statements to disrupt mass meetings of any political parties.
At a meeting with CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli at the latter’s residence on Thursday night, DPM Nidhi made it clear that he did not make any statements intending to disrupt the political activities of any parties at a program organized in Lahan on February 26.

In the meeting with Oli, Nidhi objected to the term ‘anti-nationalist’ used by the CPN-UML in the constitution amendment proposal.
Meanwhile, Nidhi also said that he has alrrady directed security agencies to make security arrangements for UML’s Mechi-Mahakali campaign.
