Rumors fall flat and rise again

S Y Qurashi, Ila Sharma
Speculations were rife last week of former Chief Election Commissioner S Y Quraishi and current Election Commissioner of Nepal Ila Sharma planning to tie the knot. This was scotched on Saturday when Quraishi took to Twitter and clarified that they are “indeed very good friends”, but “all else is interesting speculation”. Quraishi, in another tweet, praised Sharma for pursuing electoral reforms and gender equity in Nepal. What could probably settle the issue is Sharma quoting Quraishi’s tweet on Sunday, saying, “This should clear the air.” Yet the rumors persist.
