Cabinet reshuffle not likely anytime soon: NCP Co-chair Dahal

DHANGADHI: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Co-chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal said the reshuffling of the Cabinet would not happen anytime soon.

In a press meet organised in Dhangadhi, NCP (NCP) Co-chair Dahal, also former prime minister, said the reshuffling of the cabinet was just a rumour and denied that no such thing was discussed in the cabinet meeting.

He also asserted that although he held the position of co-chairperson of the ruling NCP (NCP), reshuffling of the cabinet fully depended on the decision made by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

However, Dahal said the far-west would be prioritised if the cabinet was reshuffled, and added that the PM would consult with him before making the decision of reshuffling the cabinet.

NCP (NCP) Co-chair Dahal reached Dhangadhi on Friday to inaugurate the training session being held for the local representatives in far western Nepal.
