July 7, Dhangadhi. Karna Bahadur Malla, who has declared that he is not a member of the Far-Western Provincial Assembly, has been receiving government services on a monthly basis as a member of the Provincial Assembly. In the 2074 BS election, Vijayi Malla, a member of the Provincial Assembly from Dadeldhura, was declared a member of the Provincial Assembly after the Nepali Congress took action against him.
Despite announcing his resignation from the state assembly, he is receiving services in the state assembly secretariat as he has not resigned. Yuvraj Jaishi, information officer of the state assembly secretariat, said that Malla was providing services as per the law as a member of the state assembly as he had not received any information about Malla’s resignation.
Like other members of the state assembly, the secretariat has been depositing the monthly salary allowance, hospitality and accommodation facilities in Malla’s account.
“Last April, the secretariat received a letter announcing that I was not a member of the state assembly, but according to the law, the announcement does not constitute a resignation,” Jaisi told Online Khabar.
A few days ago, Malla sent a letter of resignation from the state assembly member to the state assembly secretariat via email. He will be relieved of his post only after Speaker Arjun Bahadur Thapa reads the letter in the state assembly meeting.
The Malla faction had boycotted the district convention of Dadeldhura saying that the Congress had distributed fake active membership against the party constitution. As the controversy over the same issue escalated, the Congress expelled Malla from the party without even being an ordinary member.
After the expulsion, he held a press conference in Dadeldhura and announced that he would not run for the post of Far-Western Provincial Assembly member, but did not resign. In the local level election held on April 12, Malla had coordinated with the CPN-UML from the Congress BP.
