HISSAN General Secretary, Lok Bahadur Bhandari has issued a press release concerning the statement given against the President of Higher Institutions and Secondary Schools’ Organization Nepal (HISSAN) and member secretary of National Sports Council (Nepal Government), Mr. Ramesh Kumar Silwal, by a state minister of Gandaki Province, Rajeev Gurung, who is widely known by his nickname, Deepak Manange.
In the press release, Mr. Bhandari has condemned the statement of the state minister, Rajeev Gurung which belittled the personal status of widely acclaimed academician and philanthropist, Mr. Silwal. In addition, it is also demanded that the state minister should be punished lawfully by the state as it is highly disgraceful to hear such an unruly and misleading statement from the person who holds a respective post in the provincial government. Moreover, the HISSAN is appealing to the Gandaki Province Chief Minister to punish the minister if he does not apologize to Mr. Silwal publicly at the earliest.
In the statement, it was alleged that Mr. Silwal is a hedonist who is living with disgrace and notoriety.
