10 UCPN-M MPs stand against ministerial manipulation

July 10, Kathmandu. Those who have become ministers from the Unified Socialists have sent a letter to party president Madhav Kumar Nepal saying that it is not natural to reshuffle the cabinet. They have also expressed dissatisfaction saying that they have been treated like criminals time and again.

The eight-point letter has the signatures of Ministers Virodh Khatiwada, Ram Kumari Jhankri, Prem Ale, Krishna Kumar Shrestha and six MPs.

Chairman Madhav Kumar Nepal had earlier recalled the incumbent ministers and recommended a new one to Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba. However, the homework of the reshuffle was postponed for the time being as the budget session was underway and the ministers had to respond. Even after the budget was passed, those who became ministers from the Unified Socialists are angry after Chairman Nepal said that ministers should be reshuffled.

“After the budget has been passed, the pressure put on the Prime Minister to swear in the ministers today / tomorrow cannot be considered good,” he said in a letter.

A meeting of the secretariat of the Unified Socialists on May 7 recalled Health Minister Virodh Khatiwada, Tourism Minister Prem Bahadur Ale, Urban Development Minister Ram Kumari Jhankri and Labor Minister Krishna Kumar Shrestha and recommended new names. The names of Bhavani Khapung, Jeevan Ram Shrestha, Metmani Chaudhary, Sher Bahadur Kunwar and Hira KC were recommended for the new minister.

He also said that the recommendation made as the new minister was unbalanced and non-inclusive. They have also demanded to convene a meeting of the parliamentary parties immediately to discuss the ministerial reshuffle and other issues.
