CPN Maoist’s election excitement gone wrong!

April 13, 2022

On Wednesday morning, CPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal aka Prachanda posted an ‘election poster’ with a picture of himself, Finance Minister Janardan Sharma and Nepal Electricity Authority Managing Director (MD) Kulman Ghising on social media.

However, Prachanda has removed the election poster with the picture of Kulman Ghising from the social networking site Facebook after widespread criticism.

According to the Election Code of Conduct 2022, government employees are not allowed to join any political party or stand for or against any candidate.

MD Ghising had also instructed Prachanda’s personal secretariat to remove his picture from the poster, complaining that it was used without his consent. “I am upset about this. I have asked them to remove the poster,” Ghising said.

The election poster that had Ghising’s image also had a slogan ‘From darkness to light’.
