Pokhara, November 15
Gandaki Chief Minister Krishna Chandra Nepali Pokharel has removed Physical Infrastructure Minister Kumar Khadka from the cabinet after he was found campaigning against the ruling alliance for the November 20 elections.
Just last week, CM Pokharel sacked Energy Minister Hari Sharan Acharya on the same charge.
Khadka had expected that the Nepali Congress party would field him for the Provincial Assembly elections from Kaski’s constituency 2(2). However, he was denied the election ticket.
After that, it has been learned that he made efforts to ensure that the Congress candidate from the constituency, Bindu Kumar Thapa, would not win the elections.
