KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba on Sunday refuted his involvement in leasing Nepal Trust’s land.

Speaking during today’s session of the House of Representatives (HoR), Deuba expressed concern saying that his name was mentioned on political prejudice in the white paper released by the Nepal Trust office last week.

Deuba, who is also the former Prime Minister, argued that no decision was taken to provide Nepal Trust’s land in lease during his premiership.

“I’ve serious objection to it,” he told the parliament. It should be noted that a white paper issued by Chairperson of the Nepal Trust and Deputy Prime Minister Ishwor Pokhrel had implicated Deuba in the decision of providing land to Yeti Holdings during his premiership.

He also blamed the government for its involvement in corruption in course of providing land of Nepal Trust, Gokarna Resort and expansion of 4G service.

Deuba said that the government should furnish clarifications in the parliament on these issues.

Stating that the government was involved in large-scale financial irregularities in the security print procurement, Deuba sought Prime Minister K P Oli’s response in regard to the alleged involvement of the then Minister for Communications and Information Technology in the ‘audio tape’ scandal.
