Kathmandu, April 18

A ruling coalition partner, Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, today wrote to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, asking him to remove assistant minister for federal affairs and local development Biraj Bahadur Bista.

Accusing him of acting against the party’s welfare and unity, the work execution committee of the party today decided to communicate with PM Oli to sack Bista.

According to Mohan Shrestha, co-spokesperson for the party, the party has asked PM Oli to sack assistant minister Bista.

The work execution committee of the party had sought clarification from assistant minister Bista accusing him of going against the party.

Earlier, the party’s central committee meeting held at Birgunj had decided to suspend Bista’s father and co-chairman of the party Keshar Bahadur Bista even from the party’s general membership.

Commenting on the party’s action against him, Bista said the party took the action against him after he refused to put in papers for the deeds of his father and his stance.

“They asked me to resign because of my father’s activities but I refused to oblige,” he told THT, adding that he would continue to fight against the absurdities in the party.

He said he would reveal all the misdeeds of the party leaders because of which not only his father but many others had to suffer. Bista told the party leaders that he was elected to the central committee of the party and the Parliament.
