It is not the first incident of its kind, as on January 20 last year Chairman Jhal Nath Khanal of United Marxist Leninist was slapped by a former UML cadre, Devi Prasad Regmi. This also happened at a public function. But after this slap Khanal became Nepal’s Prime Minister.
In a similar manner on May 2nd 2012 Jhakku Subedi of Unified Maoists was slapped by Prem Raj Devkota, a tea stall owner. Another such incident took place in Kapan, Kathmandu, where President Sushil Koirala of Nepali Congress was attacked at a party function.
This was surely a sad incident and has given negative publicity to the already troubled Nepali politics, reported ANI.
