CPN-UML condemns attack on Sherdhan Rai

The CPN-UML has condemned the attack on its candidate to the State Assembly of Bhojpur and former Minister for Information and Communications Sherdhan Rai.

The vehicle that was carrying Rai was attacked Tuesday morning at Tamke Maiyum Municipality-7 in course of election publicity.

A press release issued Tuesday by party Chairman KP Sharma Oli blamed that the attack was carried out with an intention to foil the election.

“The government’s indifference towards series of attack on the candidates of the leftist alliance has surprised our party,” the statement reads.
