Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai on Thursday flatly denied making a statement that there is danger Nepal may merge with India or China.
A day after the main opposition party Nepali Congress demanded PM Bhattarai's resignation over his controversial remarks that Nepal may merge with either of its two big neighbours if the country doesn't come out from the "buffer state mentality", PM's political advisor Devendra Poudel issued a statement saying that a nefarious propaganda has been started against the prime minister on something he has never said.
Poudel further said that the media wrongly interpreted the remark made by PM Bhattarai during an informal talks and it has spread wrong impression about the prime minister in the public.
NC lawmakers had obstructed Wednesday's House proceeding saying that the PM, being the top executive of the country had no rights to give antinationalist remarks. nepalnews.com
