Minister resigns over indecent remarks on medical students

 

Kathmandu: Law Minister Sher Bahadur Tamang, who was under extreme criticism for his indecent remarks on Nepalese female students studying MBBS in Bangladesh, has resigned on Tuesday.

Tamang, who was very emotional in announcing the resignation at the press conference held at the ministry, wept with tears. He expressed sadness referring that he was trapped at time when he was doing good things. He said, “I honor the women and I have always fought for their rights, but today I am attacked with their issues.”

While announcing the resignation, he was often stumbled and tearing. He tried to save himself stating that he had no ill-intentions to hurt the students.

He had come under widespread criticism after he made indecent remarks during an event organized at Praxis Academy on July 20.  During the event, he said that female students studying MBBS in Bangladesh were compelled to compromise with their integrity to obtain medical degrees.
