Nov 28, 2018-
Lawmakers of the main opposition Nepali Congress (NC) have expressed their dissatisfaction over Province 2 Chief Minister Lal Babu Raut’s move to involve actress Rekha Thapa in the ‘Beti Padhau, Beti Bachau’ campaign.
Speaking at the zero hour of Province 2 assembly meeting, NC lawmaker Shiva Chandra Chaudhary said that it was unfortunate to involve actress Thapa in the ‘Beti Padhau, Beti Bachau’ campaign.
Is this province’s campaign or Chief Minister Lal Babu Raut’s personal campaign? Chaudhary questioned. He urged the government to involve the Madhesi actress in the campaign.
In the meeting, another NC lawmaker Naresh Yadav urged the province government to involve Madhesi actor in the campaign. NC lawmaker Saraswoti Chaudhary also said that it would not send a good message to involve actress Thapa in the campaign.
Also speaking in the meeting, Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) lawmaker Sarita Sah urged the government to involve women lawmakers in the ‘Beti Padhau, Beti Bachau’ campaign.
Nepal Communist Party lawmaker Jwala Sah alerted the government that some people are misusing the budget of the campaign.
