KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Oli has remarked that audio of former Communications Minister Gokul Baskota bargaining for a commission was not a strong proof to indict him for corruption.

The prime minister said that the authenticity of the audio in which the former minister is heard bargaining for Rs 70 million commission over procurement of security press is yet to be verified.

Speaking at Bagmati-level cadres’ training program on Thursday, PM Oli said that the audio is currently being investigated.

“It is being investigated if the audio can be taken as proof or not. It is yet to be proven that he had demanded a bribe,” said PM Oli, “If proven guilty, he will face action.”

The prime minister added that ex-Minister Baskota has told him that it was not his voice on the audio that forced the incumbent minister to quit.
