The UML general secretary doesn't like his own picture. He is outraged about a photograph (right) published by Ghatna Ra Bichar in its 19 February issue. Madhav Kumar Nepal is so livid about this picture that he is out bashing all Nepali-language papers in town. He was particularly venomous about Kantipur, saying it published lies. "They all want to defame me," Nepal said. "Ghatna Ra Bichar has made it a mission to defame me. Look at my picture on their first page. It is it is scary.unshaven and with fogged up glasses.They stand to gain nothing from showing me in such an unflattering way." He accused the editor of the paper of belittling him, and warned other papers to stop the "baseless and bad publicity campaign" adding "we can initiate a similar campaign against them (the editors)".
