Kedar Karki’s govt in Koshi Province is a coalition govt: PM Dahal

Prime Minister and CPN-Maoist Center Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ announced that the ruling coalition has embraced Kedar Karki, a leader from the Nepali Congress (NC), as the Chief Minister of Koshi Province.

Speaking with reporters at Bharatpur Airport in Chitwan on Saturday, PM Dahal affirmed that Karki, who secured the Chief Minister position with the backing of CPN-UML MPs, now represents the entire coalition.

He stated, “Now Karkiji has become the Chief Minister, and he is the Chief Minister of all of us. Therefore, the way that problem has been thought about and the way it has been discussed in the media has taken a safe course, now a safe landing has been made.”

Prime Minister Dahal, NC President Deuba, and Leader Shekhar Koirala sign crucial agreement

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba have inked a significant written agreement alongside NC leader Dr. Shekhar Koirala, solidifying their commitment to maintaining the ruling alliance despite changing circumstances in Koshi Province.

The trio’s agreement, forged on a Saturday morning, unequivocally asserts their collective resolve to ensure the steadfastness of the ruling coalition under all circumstances. Following this agreement, NC lawmaker Kedar Karki has been appointed as the Chief Minister of Koshi Province.

Koshi Province Chief Parshuram Khapung formalized Karki’s appointment as Chief Minister on Saturday, following the signatures of 39 UML and 8 NC lawmakers who threw their support behind him.

Koshi Province NC dispute: Province PP leader Thapa resigns

Nepali Congress (NC) parliamentary party leader in Koshi Province Assembly Uddhav Thapa has tendered his resignation from his post.

Thapa’s decision to step down as the party leader was rooted in ethical considerations, following the appointment of Kedar Karki from the NC Shekhar Koirala faction as Chief Minister, a move that ran counter to the ruling coalition’s decision.

Despite the initial alliance’s endorsement of Indra Angbo, the leader of the CPN-Maoist Center, for the position of Chief Minister in Koshi, the Shekhar faction of NC rebelled and nominated Kedar Karki as the candidate for Chief Minister.

Digression from BP’s thoughts dents NC: Dr. Sashank Koirala

Nepali Congress leader Dr. Sashank Koirala has said NC is stronger than other parties due to its glorious history and ideology. However, digression from BP Koirala’s thoughts has dented the party much in recent times, he argued.

Addressing a greetings exchange program organized by the Nepal Student Union Lamjung-Kathmandu Contact Committee in the federal capital today, leader Koirala warned of fading BP’s thoughts in the NC.
