On February 11 we published an article headed ‘Sushil Koirala elected as twenty seventh Prime Minister of Nepal’ which showed a wrong photo. We now accept that Mr. Sushil Koirala bears no resemblance to the person shown in that article and not even after a night out with no sleep.
We apologise for any distress and embarrassment our article has caused to Mr. Sushil Koirala and we have agreed to pay him damages in the form of a free dhaal bhaat and a lap dance.
We would like to reiterate that we adhere to the strictest journalistic code of ethics and the writer of said article has been sacked.
This is a photo of the one and only and real Mr. Sushil Koirala courtesy nepalnews.com.
In addition we have received notice from the Indian gentleman whose photo was featured in this unfortunate article that he wishes to have his name printed.
We gladly grant his wish. It was Mr. Manmohan Singh who gave the exuberant thumbs up.
