Corruption and development cannot go together: Raj Kishor Yadav


KATHMANDU, April 26: Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) leader Raj Kishor Yadav has said that corruption and development cannot go together.

Talking to Rishi Dhamala at a radio program Nepali Bahas on Friday, Yadav accused the government of protecting the corrupts in the country and added, “If the country is to be developed and prosper, the government should eliminate corruption from its room.

“The government is protecting the masterminds behind illegally privatizing the 114 ropanies of lands of Lalita Niwas, which was nationalized in 1964,” he said.

Yadav also said that RJPN is discussing to hold its first general convention as soon as possible.

The party was supposed to hold the general convention in the last week of April. However, it was deferred citing lack of sufficient preparations.
