The CPN-UML Parliamentary Party (PP) suspended Minister for Physical Infrastructure Development Amar Bahadur Thapa, Minister for Industry, Tourism, Forest and Environment Nanda Singh Budha and Minister for Land Management, Agriculture and Cooperatives Kurmaraj Shahi, said a statement issued by Karnali PA Secretariat Friday.
According to the statement, the CPN-UML PP suspended them from the Karnali PA for one month for not complying with the decision of the Karnali UML PP.
