Kathmandu, 17 June:Prime Minister Khagda Oli is quietly working to reshuffle his cabinet as questions are being raised about the government’s performance from different quarters including his own party, the Nepal Communist Party (NCP).
An advisor to the prime minister said, Oli had wanted to reshuffle the cabinet immediately after the fiscal budget was endorsed by parliament but the work was delayed for a couple of reasons. The reshuffle, according to the advisor, is likely to happen within a few weeks, reports Republica daily.
Before reshuffling the cabinet, Oli wants to resolve some internal disputes related to party organization and some issues related to the merger agreement between the then CPN-UML and the CPN (Maoist Center). Also, the prime minister intends to address the anti-government protests initiated by Guthi supporters and the concerns of other disgruntled groups before effecting a cabinet reshuffle
