MORANG – Chief Minister of Koshi Province, Hikmat Karki, has said CPN UML had no big problems to sort out.
CM Karki viewed it while inaugurating the first convention of Progressive and Professional Legal Practitioners’ Association close to his party here Saturday. “The UML had to make strong stand on naming Khoshi Province, but it was not so,” he admitted, expressing worry that some of UML cadres themselves wrote and opined against naming of Koshi Province.
He asserted that the naming Province-1 as Koshi Province was correct and there was no point in getting backtracked from it.
According to him, a protest was launched forcefully against naming the province. He further argued that the protest was not raised from local people but outsourced by bringing people even from the federal capital, Kathmandu.
CM Karki also blamed that some elements were trying to launch communal riot here.
He wondered why Rastriya Swatantra Party did not come up with clear response on naming of province although all other parties made their views public on it. The convention is attended by the legal practitioners from Koshi Province.
