KATHMANDU: Challenging Friday’s cabinet reshuffle, a writ petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking its annulment.
Senior Advocate Dinesh Tripathi filed a writ petition seeking annulment of the new appointments, reshuffle and division of work in the cabinet as made by President Bidya Devi Bhandari in the recommendation of the Council of Ministers.
In his writ, senior advocate Tripathi has argued that the latest cabinet reshuffle and the appointment of the new ministers and their work division is fraudulent and contradict the spirit of many articles of the Constitution including, Article 2, 74, 77 (C) and deserves annulment.
