KATHMANDU, July 14: The main opposition CPN-UML has clarified that M Adhikari, a member of the finance and planning department of the party, is not the governor of Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB).

Secretary of the office Bhishma Adhikari said that the M Adhikari of the finance department of the party was not Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari. He claimed that there is no policy to keep those in government service in any department of the party.

Stating that his name is being publicized, Maha Prasad Adhikari has written a letter to the UML central office stating that he could not even think of being a member of any party. In response to the letter, UML has clarified that M Adhikari is not the governor.

The controversy escalated recently after the ruling Nepali Congress, CPN (Maoist Center) and others demanded the resignation of NRB Governor Adhikari saying that a party cadre cannot become the governor. They have demanded an investigation, claiming that M Adhikari and Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari are the same person.
