Expressing dissatisfaction over the remarks of Minister Yadav, UML senior Vice-Chairman Ishwor Pokharel has sought answers from the Prime Minister and the leaders of the ruling coalition.

As many 27 cadres of the then CPN-Maoist were murdered at a Gaur-based rice mill on March 21, 2007. The women were raped before the murder.
