Objectionable comments against Nirmal Purja in Parliament unacceptable: Lawmaker Miya (With video)

KATHMANDU: CPN (Maoist Centre) lawmaker Kalpana Miya said that the objectionable comments made in the Parliament against Nepali mountaineer Nirmal Purja, who had made a history by climbing all 14 peaks above 8, 000 metres in 190 days, are not acceptable.

Speaking at the zero hour of the Parliament meeting on Friday, lawmaker Miya said that Nirmal Purja, who has made Nepal’s name known to the world, should not be treated as a hate figure.

“World record holder Nirmal Purja is being dragged into unnecessary controversy. A lawmaker has been constantly making accusations in the Parliament. No one is allowed to make unnecessary comments against the climber who has made Nepal’s name known to the world,” she said, adding, “Attempts are being made to drag the jewel of the country by making unnecessary accusations deliberately.”

Lawmaker Miya made these remarks in response to lawmaker Rajendra Bajagain’s statement that Nirmal Purja should be banned from entering Nepal.
