Kathmandu, April 10
The Council of Ministers is likely to appoint new inspectors general of Nepal Police and Armed Police Force on Tuesday.
Incumbent Nepal Police IG Prakash Aryal and APF IG Singha Bahadur Shrestha are retiring this week.
A Cabinet meeting was held this morning. However, it could not make the appointments. Therefore, it is expected that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will call the second meeting. Ministers have been told to stay standby.
It has been learned that Prime Minister Oli and Home Affairs Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa held a separate meeting about the appointment this morning.
Meanwhile, the morning meeting also failed to appoint the new Vice-Chairman of National Planning Commission. PM Oli’s CPN-UML has proposed its Central Audit Commission chief Pushpa Kandel for the position.
