Lawmaker Gagan Thapa lashes out at PM Oli for his ‘double personality’


KATHMANDU, May 14: Nepali Congress lawmaker Gagan Thapa lashed out at Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli saying that he blatantly surrendered to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi during his recent two-day state visit to Nepal.

Speaking at the Parliament on Monday, Lawmaker Thapa came down heavily on Prime Minister Oli for his ‘double personality’ saying that he called his predecessors’ state visits to India as the ‘surrenderism’ while the Prime Minister himself embarked on a state visit to India soon after he became the Nepal’s Prime Minister.

“Our Prime Minister roared like a tiger during his speech in defense of nationalism while he was receiving vote of confidence in the Parliament. But he did not speak even a single word on Indian blockade during PM Modi’s recent visit,” Thapa commended.

Thapa also criticized the government for allowing Modi to come to Nepal with his own security personnel clad in dress code arguing that it constituted double personality of PM Oli as he flayed his predecessors for doing the same in the past.

Criticizing that Oli claimed himself as the one only nationalist while the rest are not during the election campaign, Thapa suggested that responsible leaders like Oli should stop using so called nationalistic discourse as a device to simply garner votes.

Meanwhile, he urged one and all to come up with a single foreign policy and lead the nation accordingly.
