Sujata challenges party panel to show proof of foul play

Nepali Congress (NC) leader Sujata Koirala challenged the party’s disciplinary committee to show evidences of her acts against the party during the Constituent Assembly elections last year.

Party’s central disciplinary committee has recommended suspending Koirala along with 182 other party members for three months for her role in defeating the party candidate in Morang 1 during the elections.

The party has given all 183 leaders a time of 35 days to submit applications for review of the actions recommended by disciplinary committee.

Speaking at a function in the Capital, Koirala said she is ready to face any action if the committee produces reasonable evidences.

She also requested party President and Prime Minister Sushil Koirala to immediately withdraw the action against her.

Claiming the action prejudiced, she said the disciplinary committee engaged in her character assassination.

She added that the disciplinary committee decided the actions on personal interests of its head Amod Prasad Upadhyaya.
