DHANGADHI, Nov 17: Four-time prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that he will become prime minister for seven times in his lifetime because fortune tellers have said so.
Deuba made the remark in the wake of CPN-UML Chairman, KP Sharma Oli's claim on Wednesday that the current premiership of Deuba would be his last. "I will be the prime minister three more times. Fortune tellers have said that I'll be the country's prime minister seven times, so three more time remains," Deuba said at a press conference in Dhangadhi on Thursday.
Stating that there are no candidates other than himself anywhere in Province 7 who are suitable for premiership, he urged voters to help Nepali Congress win the elections. "Nepali Congress will emerge victorious both in provincial and parliamentary elections."
