Nepal minister quits over remarks on female students in BD
GB news 24 desk//
Nepalese Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Sher Bahadur Tamang on Tuesday offered his resignation through a press meet organised at Singha Durbar in Kathmandu.
Minister Tamang offered his resignation following widespread public dissatisfaction over his recent remark where he was heard as saying, “female students in Bangladesh pursuing MBBS degree have to sell themselves in order to earn a certificate.”
The government faced a backlash following the Law Minister’s comment at a public event, reports The Himalayan.
However, the minister did not extend any apology for his comments and blatantly put the blame on ‘those who are trying to malign the name of the current government that is working towards achieving the aim of a prosperous Nepal.”
Tamang, however, said that he is resigning on moral grounds.
Dhaka also protested the remarks through Nepalese Ambassador in Dhaka Chop Lal Bhusal, a diplomatic source said.
