Madhav Nepal’s clarification on Asia Pacific Summit: I’m not connected to Christianity

Kathmandu, January 7

Senior leader of the ruling Nepal Communist Party and former prime minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has clarified that he is not connected to Christianity, but respects all religions equally.

Nepal says he participated in the controversial Asia Pacific Summit in November-December last year in order to seek international support and solidarity to the government’s Prosperous Nepal: Happy Nepali campaign.

The leader presented his clarification at a meeting of the International Relations Committee in the House of Representatives today after Nepali Congress leader Divya Mani Rajbhandari sought his response.

Nepal also reminded Rajbhandari that some Nepali Congress leaders including its founder BP Koirala, Ganesh Man Singh, Krishna Prasad Bhattarai, Girija Prasad Koirala, Sushil Koirala and Sher Bahadur Deuba also attended the summit at different points of time.

He said rumours were made against him over the Summit with an ill intention.
