Nepal Red Cross Society flays vandalism at its office

KATHMANDU: Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) has denounced the vandalism carried out at its office.

Organizing a press conference today, NRCS president Sudarshan Prasad Nepal accused the group under the leadership of immediate past president Dr Netra Prasad Timsina of carrying out the vandalism.

He alleged that Timsina’s group came to the NRCS central office on Tuesday and involved in the act of vandalism.

“It is not proper for a person like the immediate past president of NRCS to come to the Red Cross secretariat and involve in vandalism. We want to keep the Red Cross’ credibility high,” the NRCS president Nepal said.

The government on May 14 formed a 33-member Ad-hoc Committee under Nepal’s chairmanship with the termination of Dr Timsina’s term. The government has directed the Ad-hoc Committee to hold the NRCS’ elections within three months.

NRCS general-secretary Bhupati Lal Shrestha said Dr Timsina’s team has resorted to vandalism instead of seeking solution through talks and dialogue.

According to him, at 1.30 pm on Tuesday a team led by Dr Timsina vandalized the offices of the general-secretary and the deputy general-secretary among the NRCS office-bearers.
