Kathmandu, March 14

Before officially taking up his new diplomatic assignment, Nepal’s newly appointed ambassador to India, Nilamber Acharya, on Wednesday submitted his letter of credence to Indian President Ram Nath Kovind.

Acharya had left Kathmandu for New Delhi on February 18.

After the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee endorsed Acharya’s nomination made by the government, President Bidya Devi Bhandari had appointed him to the post on February 3.

He was sworn in by the President the same day.

The position was vacant since then ambassador, Deep Kumar Upadhyay, quit in order to contest the 2017 general elections as a Nepali Congress candidate.
