"When somebody cannot react politically against a civilian party, he resorts to conspiracy."says Krishna Bahadur Mahara of UCPN Maoist
Chief of foreign relations department of the Unified CPN (Maoist) Krishna Bahadur Mahara Saturday said recent audio tape (which is yet to be verified independently) of a telephone conversation with a Chinese man in which he asks for Rs 500 million to 'buy' lawmakers to vote for Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal was a conspiracy tool against the party's political image.
In an exclusive interview with Rajendra Pokharel of Nepalnews, Mahara said the audio scandal is nothing new for the party. He vehemently denied any conversation with the Chinese man in question.
"There had been many such allegations and propaganda against our party in the past," Mahara said, "When somebody cannot react politically against a civilian party, he resorts to conspiracy."
