KATHMANDU: Civil society leaders have called for the removal of President Ram Chandra Paudel’s advisor, Chiranjivi Nepal.

Advisor to the President has drawn criticism for protesting the decision of the Nepal Rastra Bank to include the ‘Chuche’ map while reprinting 100-rupee notes.

Leading figures in civil society, including Nilambar Acharya, Suryanath Upadhyaya, Sushil Pyakurel, and Kanak Mani Dixit, have jointly demanded Nepal’s dismissal from his position.

They have argued that his dissent against the government’s actions, particularly his warnings about deteriorating relations with India, undermines national interests.

In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, the four civil leaders expressed concern that Chiranjivi Nepal’s public opposition in national and international media compromises the country’s dignity and official protocol.

It should be noted that Chiranjivi Nepal had criticized the government’s decision as unwise and contrary to international norms, especially given the ongoing border dispute with India.

The civil leaders protesting against his statements insist on his removal from office.
