KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Oli’s Foreign Affairs Advisor Dr. Rajan Bhattarai has claimed that Bagmati province lawmaker Narottam Baidya made the statement against the Prime Minister not swayed by emotion but in full conscious; hence, Baidya should be booked by law.

Responding to lawmaker Baidya’s threatening speech against Prime Minister KP Oli in the province assembly, PM Oli’s Advisor Dr. Bhattarai, on his Twitter message on Saturday, demanded to bring him under the ambit of law and take action against him.

“One of the people’s representatives stood in the rostrum of the province assembly and gave the example of the neighboring country and said that he would assassinate the prime minister,” Bhattarai wrote, “His statement did not come as a reaction, but in a thoughtful and calculated way. The issue raised in the formal meeting with the record should be brought under the purview of law and action should be taken.”

In a meeting of the Province Assembly on Friday, Baidya said that Prime Minister Oli was about to ruin the country and that someone should become Nathuram Godse to stop it, otherwise he (Baidya) himself would become a Godse.

Godse was the man who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi.
