 The main opposition CPN (UML) Chairman K P Sharma Oli has said that his party could not agree on the issues of losing national identity.

While addressing a programme organized to welcome new comers in the party today, Oli said that if the Hindi language is listed as the official language in Tarai, it will harm local languages like Maithali, Bhojpuri and Abadhi. 

He added that Hindi is not a mother tongue of any community therefore it cannot be accepted as the official language in any province.  

Former Prime Minister Oli said that the UML is opposition party in the parliament but is a ruling side in local level polls for becoming the largest one therefore it will welcome positive policy and programmes forwarded by the government.
