KATHMANDU, August 14: CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said that he does not even have money for healthcare. He said all the properties under his and his wife’s name have been donated to the state after their death. Oli added that he cannot even pay for their healthcare by selling their property.
He said that all his deeds were dedicated to the country, so he had decided to donate the property to the state. Saying that his opponents did not allow him to work for the country’s development, Oli expressed his commitment to keep working for the country’s development. He claimed that he was no less active than any youth.
He said, "It's not just that I don't do corruption and don’t let others do it, I have already donated my and my wife’s property to the state. Because I am devoted to the country. Therefore, as long as I live, as long as my wife lives, we get to live in our house. After our death, it belongs to the country. If I get sick, you can pay for my treatment; otherwise I don't have money. I am a member of parliament and get something out of that. Otherwise, I cannot say that I will sell my house and bear my treatment cost because I have donated it to the country. As long as I live, I am dedicated to the country and its citizens.
Chairman Oli insisted that it is not true that political parties do not give importance to the youth. He mentioned that the CPN-UML has made a 29-year-old deputy mayor in Kathmandu Metropolitan City and challenged other parties to show the courage to nominate a 29-year-old youth as a candidate.
