Oli reshuffles Cabinet; Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal is new Law Minister

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Friday reshuffled the federal Council of Minister fulfilling two vacant positions of ministers.

His own party’s Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal has been made the Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs after incumbent Sher Bahadur Tamang submitted his resignation last week. Tamang was forced to resign by the party as his statement about Nepali students pursuing medical courses in Bangladesh sparked a public fury.

Meanwhile, Minister of State Padma Kumari Aryal has been promoted to the position of Minister and has been given the responsibility of Ministry of Land Management and Poverty Alleviation. The minister was formed after splitting the Ministry of Agriculture, Land Management and Cooperatives.

She was State Minister for Health earlier.

Oli appointed Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal’s Surendra Yadav in Aryal’s position.

Dhakal and Aryal will take the oath of office and secrecy from the President and Yadav from the PM after 4:30 pm today.

Eight Nepali Congress leaders demand immediate local, provincial conventions 2 SHARES FacebookTwitterEmail Onlinekhabar Clockwise, from top left: Gagan Thapa, Chandra Bhandari, Dhana Raj Gurung, Guru Raj Ghimire, Ram Krishna Yadav, Kiran Yadav, Jeevan Pariyar and Pradeep Paudel Kathmandu, June 20 Whereas factional politics is at its peak in Nepali Congress, eight youth leaders of the party have demanded that the main opposition begin the process of electing new leadership immediately, claiming the current leadership is incapable of taking the party ahead effectively. As the party’s district presidents have gathered in Hetaunda of Makawanpur for a three-day meeting, the youth leaders–namely: Chandra Bhandari, Dhana Raj Gurung, Gagan Thapa, Jeevan Pariyar, Guru Raj Ghimire, Pradeep Paudel, Ram Krishna Yadav, and Kiran Yadav–have called them to press the party leadership for holding conventions of local and provincial level committees by the end of current Nepali year (mid-April 2019). They have argued that the 14th national general convention of the party must be organised in February-March 2020; therefore concluding conventions of lower committees should be an immediate priority as it also takes time. Otherwise, the party will lose next provincial and parliamentary elections, to be held in 2022, they have warned. The leaders have distributed a three-page letter to all participants of the meeting. “Do you think a strong opposition role is possible with current style, leadership and ideological confusion? No!” the letter reads, “Now, it is essential to finalise a new mission of the Congress so that its organisation can carry a new agenda for the new era. We also need to elect a new leadership capable for that.” If that happens, the party will prepare itself for upcoming local, provincial and federal parliamentary elections, according to them.
