RPP recalls ministers, decides to vote against PM Oli

KATHMANDU: Lokendra Bahadur Chand-led Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) on Saturday decided to recall two ministers from the KP Sharma Oli-led government, which is on the verge of collapse.

It also decided that the lawmakers of the party would vote against Oli when the no-confidence motion filed against him would be put to vote at the House on Sunday.

According to party's co-spokesperson Kiran Giri, a meeting of the party's parliamentary board presided over by Pashupati Shamsher Rana made the decision to this effect today.

Deepak Bohora and Jayant Chand represent the party in the Oli Cabinet. Chand is currently in Kenya for a UN conference.

Bohora holds the Labour and Employment portfolio. He has been given the responsibility of the Ministry of Supply also after Maoist ministers resigned from the government last week.

Likewise, Chand is the incumbent Minister for Commerce.

The party has 12 seats in the Parliament.
