The ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) cadres, in what seems like the nod from the government, are becoming extremely intolerant toward anyone who raises the question about misrule, corruption and irregularities. This is going to be costly for the government which is already earning notoriety for failing to govern as per the aspirations of people.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s and his cabinet colleague, Minister for Information and Communication Technology Gokul Baskota’s unrestrained tirade is projecting the government as being intolerant to all forms of criticism. This is a matter of deep worry for Nepal’s international image and democracy. In a televised show Wednesday night, Prime Minister appeared to denigrate Nepal’s intellectual communities and journalists.
