>>The first sentence of the news item “Prachanda seeks clarification on Army Chief’s remarks” (Page 13, December 25, 2009, City Editions) said, “Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ on Thursday sought New Delhi’s stand on the remarks made by Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor ... into the Nepal Army.” It should have been government’s and not New Delhi’s. This makes it clear that Mr. Dahal sought [Nepal] Government’s stand on Gen. Kapoor’s remarks.
