Province 2 MPs in ugly spat
- NCP lawmaker Manju Yadav slaps her colleague Kishori Sah
Jun 7, 2018-
Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Province 2 lawmaker Manju Yadav slapped her fellow party lawmaker Kishori Sah at the Parliamentary Party office in Janakpur on Tuesday.Witnesses said Yadav planted a tight slap on Sah’s cheek when the latter tried to intervene in an argument that the former was having with the office computer operator.
Yadav was in the office to get some documents typed following Tuesday’s Province Assembly meeting when she got into a verbal altercation with the computer operator because she insisted on typing the documents herself. But the argument soon took a new turn when Sah entered the office and tried to calm Yadav down.
The Post learned that Sah was the first one to ‘slap threat’ Yadav, but it was Yadav who struck first.
Yadav was elected under the proportional representation category from Mahottari district and Sah was elected under the first-past-the-post category from Dhanusha.
Both lawmakers were left red-faced, one of them literally, after the incident.
