KARNALI: The Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has withdrawn its support to the Karnali provincial government headed by Chief Minister Raj Kumar Sharma.
RPP Province Assembly member Santoshi Shahi handed a written letter to the Province Chief Tilak Pariyar today and informed that the party has withdrawn its support to the provincial government.
She said the party pulled out of the Karnali provincial government as per the directive of the RPP central level.
The RPP had withdrawn its support to the federal government as well before this.
“The party central level has made a decision that it would not be appropriate for the RPP to be in power in the changed political context. In line with this decision, the RPP will withdraw its support to the provincial governments across the country,” Shahi said.
The RPP has only one seat in the 40-member Karnali Province Assembly.
