Responding to queries of media persons while exiting from Home Ministry after SC’s verdict on Friday, Lamichhane shared there was not any higher body than the Supreme Court, s0 he welcomed the SC’s verdict.
“I welcome the SC’s verdict,” he reiterated, wondering, “In other questions, what can a non-citizen respond.” Lamichhane further said, “You are asking questions to a non-citizen. I don’t know whom the question is being asked.”
