Oppointment of Lokman as CIAA chief was a blunder: Gagan Thapa
Nepali Congress leader and Minister for Health, Gagan Thapa said that nomination of Lokman Singh Karki as the chairman of Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) was a server mistake made by the senior leaders of three major political parties, Nepali Congress, Communist Party of Nepal- United Marxist and Leninist ( UML) and Nepal Communist Party- Maoist.
Sharing his opinion in the meet of Legislature Parliament on Tuesday, leader Thapa added that the bosses of three major political parties Nepali Congress, Communist Party of Nepal- United Marxist and Leninist and Communist Party of Nepal- Maoist had made a blunder by appointing Thapa as the Chairman of CIAA.
Thapa said that he had even urged the then President of Nepali Congress, Sushil Koirala not to appoint Karki for the post of CIAA chair. However, Karki was honored by handling the chair of CIAA boss, Thapa added by saying.
Thapa asked all political leaders and members of parliament to unite together in passing the impeachment tabled against Karki. Thapa added that CIAA should be made as a center of transparency and for that discussion among the political leaders should be open. Thapas view has come at a time when a rumor is in the air that Nepali Congress is not in the favor of impeachment against Karki.
