Kathmandu, October 14
Madhesh Chief Minister Lalbabu Raut removed three ministers representing the Nepali Congress party from his cabinet on Friday.
Raut’s act apparently tries to take revenge on the Congress president Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba who sacked four ministers of Raut’s Janata Samajbadi Party (JSPN) from the central government on Thursday.
According to the Province Chief (Governor’s) Office, Physical Infrastructure Minister Ram Saroj Yadav, Drinking water and Energy Minister Om Prakash Sharma and Women and Children’s Minister Birendra Prasad Singh have been removed as recommended by CM Raut.
Earlier, Raut asked them to resign. However, they rejected the request, forcing him to take action.
Nepali Congress and the JSPN are at odds after the latter left the ruling alliance and partnered with the CPN-UML for the November 20 elections.
