KATHMANDU, Dec 6: The Ministry of Energy has issued a public notice, seeking clarifications from three members on the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Board of Directors over their performance in office.
NEA Board members Manoj Kumar Mishra, Laxman Prasad Agrawal and Suraj Lamichhane, have, through the public notice, been asked to receive letters dispatched by the Ministry towards that end and submit clarifications within a week.
The Ministry decided to seek clarifications from them as it realized that their performance is against the office code of conducts. It took to the public notice as Mishra, Agrawal and Lamichhane refused to accept the letters send to them by the Ministry Friday.
Thorough the public notice, the Ministry forewarned of action as per the existing law if the trio do not receive the letters and respond within the deadline.
The trio have been accused of summoning the Board meetings unilaterally and forcing the NEA administration to implement decisions of such meetings. Besides, they have been charged with creating hurdles in the implementation of the load-shedding free campaign. RSS
