The former speaker and CPN- UML leader Subash Chandra Nemwang has returned state-owned Scorpio Jeep he had received in the capacity of former speaker of the legislature parliament.
Nemwang is the fifth leader to return the state-owned vehicle to the government in the wake of growing public resentment against the government's recent decision to provide state facilities including vehicles and apartment rent to former prime ministers, home ministers, chief justices and speakers.
According to his personal assistant Buddhi Prasad Khanal, Nembang has not taken any other facility in the capacity of the former speaker.
The UCPN (Maoist) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, UML chairman Jhala Nath Khanal, senior UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal and Nepali Congress vice president Ram Chandra Poudel have already returned the state-owned vehicles to the government. nepalnews.com
