Meanwhile, the Chitwan district chapter of Nepali Congress has expressed serious concerns over the death threat to Thakuri, who is also a leader of the party.

Issuing a press release on Wednesday, NC Chitwan Secretary Uttam Joshi said the party’s attention has been drawn over the incident of threat to the people-elected representative.

Such tendency would discourage the people’s representatives in their motivation to work for public goods, the release reads.
