KATHMANDU: The Samajbadi Party Nepal has said the party’s attention has been drawn about the news reports, which said that party’s lawmaker Pradeep Yadav participated in a program at Latvian capital, Riga.
Issuing a statement on Wednesday, party Chairman Upendra Yadav clarified that the party has neither the knowledge of his participation, not had the party given the permission to attend the program.
