SURKHET, August 26: The CPN (Maoist Center) has recalled two ministers from the Karnali provincial government.
The Maoist Center has recalled the current Minister of Water Resources and Energy Development Ganesh Prasad Singh and Minister of Economic Affairs and Planning Bindaman Bista from the provincial cabinet. The party is yet to name two lawmakers, who will join the government.
Former Minister and Maoist Karnali Province Chairperson Bimala KC said the two ministers in the government have been recalled to pave the way for the remaining two MPs to be ministers. The Maoists Center is preparing to send lawmaker Rato Kami from Rukum West and Krishna Shah Acharya from Jajarkot to the Cabinet.
KC said that as per the directives of the party’s headquarters, Singh and Bista are going to be recalled and Kami and Shah are going to be sent to the cabinet. "After the meeting of the parliamentary party, we have already recommended the names of those who will participate in the government to the chief minister," KC said.
There are 11 MPs from the Maoist Center in the Karnali Province Assembly. Nine of them have joined the government. In order to pave the way for the remaining two lawmakers also to participate in the government, the Maoist Center recalled Singh and Bista, who were appointed seven months ago, from the cabinet.
