PM Oli stressed that no one has the right to demolish the Nepalese Citizen.

“The EU is seeking vengeance through this report as we have deported many who came to Nepal in the name of observation when they actually were converting people to Christianity,” PM Oli said.

The EUEOM in its report, had claimed that representation of the well-represented group Khas-Arya arguably contravened international standards of equality, as affirmative measures are foreseen only as a means to promote equality.

It also said Christians were not considered for inclusion, despite comprising 1.4 percent of the country’s population.
