A meeting of the organizing committee of the sixth national conference of the party being held here at Narayngadh also decided to give clean chit to another alternative central member of the party Bhaskar Kafle Who had allegedly asked bribe on behalf of Belbase.
In one of the videos posted on a Nepali news website, Belbase´s aide Kafle, was seen asking for Rs. 250,000 to register a recruitment agency.
“The accusation of bribery against both the leaders is baseless as they were not found to have taken the bribe from anybody,” reads the statement issued after the meeting.
