KATHMANDU, July 27: The government has recommended Amik Sherchan and Prithivi Bahadur Gurung as province chiefs of Lumbini Province and Gandaki Province, respectively.
A cabinet meeting held on Tuesday made a recommendation to this effect. The province chiefs need to be formally appointed by President Bidya Devi Bhandari to assume their office.
Earlier, the KP Oli-led government had unceremoniously sacked Sherchan from the post of Gandaki Province Chief. The Oli-led government had earlier appointed Sita Paudel as the province chief after dismissing Sherchan.
The cabinet meeting on Tuesday also dismisssed Lumbini Province Chief Dharma Nath Yadav, who was also appointed by the Oli-led government, to pave the way for Sherchan to assume office as the Province Chief.
