Resham Chaudhary stays neutral in JSP-N authenticity row
KATHMANDU: Resham Chaudhary has decided to stay neutral in the Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal (JSP-N) authenticity row.
Chaudhary, who is serving a jail term at the Dillibazaar Prison, was brought to the Election Commission on Monday afternoon to support one of the factions–Mahantha Thakur-Rajendra Mahato faction and Upendra Yadav-Baburam Bhattarai faction–in the JSP-N authenticity dispute.
The Thakur-Mahato faction and the Yadav-Bhattarai faction has been indulging in a factional dispute for the past few weeks and are claiming to be the legitimate party.
Chaudhary, however, said that would not support any of the factions in this issue.
“My ethics did not allow me to support any of the factions,” he said, adding, “I am in favour and against the JSP-N.”
Before leaving the premises of Election Commission, he demanded his early release. Chaudhary said that he wanted justice from the government.
The Kailali District Court had sentenced Chaudhary to life imprisonment for Tikapur carnage which killed nine people including a toddler in 2015.
