NC, left alliance cadres clash in Khotang
Nov 25, 2017-
Cadres of Nepali Congress (NC) and left alliance clashed in eastern hill district Khotang on Friday.
Gopal Acharya of left alliance was injured in the clash while police have arrested Subash Acharya of the alliance.
Chief District Officer Ekdev Acharya said that the clash ensued after cadres of left bloc attacked NC cadres while they were eating food.
Meanwhile, the left bloc has blamed the local administration for the clash.
According to Gopal Acharya, the NC had organised a feast last night which contradicted with election code of conduct. Even though the local administration was made aware about the fest repeatedly, no action was taken to stop the feast. Therefore, the left bloc itself attempted to disrupt the feast, said Acharya.
NC district President Naresh Kumar Shrestha was eating food when the left bloc people suddenly attacked him. This led to the confrontation between both sides.
