Jajarkot CDO to be called back

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal directed Home Minister Bhim Bahadur Rawal to call back Chief District Officer (CDO) Ramesh Bahadur Pandey from Jajarkot, as the latter failed to control the diarrhoea epidemic in the district.

The diarrhoea epidemic has claimed hundreds of lives in the district. The decision came after the government was highly criticised for its failure to control the epidemic.
