The government which has drawn public flak for the Guthi Bill, Media Council Bill and killing of Kumar Paudel has also been criticised for chaining up lawmaker Resham Chaudhary in hospital.
When a photo showing chained Chaudhary receiving treatment at Bir Hospital was made public, the government was severely criticised, although Prime Minister KP Oli immediately instructed the police to remove the chain.
Chaudhary, who has been receiving treatment at Bir Hospital, was chained to the hospital bed for “security reasons”. Prime Minister Oli, after coming to know of this, called Chief Secretary Lok Darshan Regmi instructing him to get the chain removed and to take action against those involved in the act, according to Prime Minister’s press coordinator Chetan Adhikari.
It has been learnt that PM Oli became aware of the situation when Chaudhary’s photo in such circumstance became public.
Chaudhary, who is imprisoned in Dillibazaar prison for his involvement in the Tikapur incident, has been receiving treatment in Bir Hospital.
