KATHMANDU, FEBRUARY 23
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's secretariat has refuted the rumours of Attorney General Agni Prasad Kharel's resignation as reported by some media early on Tuesday.
PM's Press Advisor Surya Thapa shared on Twitter that the news is false and urged people to not get influenced by such rumours as everyone awaits the impending decision of the Supreme Court on House Dissolution case.
Early on Tuesday, some media reports had claimed that the Attorney General had tendered his resignation after PM Oli expressed his discontent over AG Kharel's handling of the case on behalf of the defence.
"It is unfortunate that some people have resorted to spreading of false information regarding resignation of the Attorney General in a bid to influence the situation surrounding the court's impending verdict," Thapa stated.
