KATHMANDU, Jan 21: CPN-UML Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai has demanded Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to relieve Minister for Physical Infrastructure Renu Kumari Yadav from her post over her controversial remarks that sought to glorify violence.
Former Minister Bhattarai made the request through his social media. The demand of Bhattarai comes in the wake of Minister Yadav threatening to kill Chairman of Janmat Party CK Raut during the party’s function held in Rautahat on Wednesday. While venting her ire against the obstruction created by cadres belonging to the CK Raut-led Janamat Party on her way to Rautahat, Minister Yadav had threatened to repeat the Gaur massacre in which over two dozen Maoist cadres were killed.
“Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba should dismiss Minister Renu Yadav, who has been inciting violence and giving speeches against the constitution. Else, it will be considered that the Nepali Congress (NC) justifies the politics of violence. There is no other way,” he said.
