KATHMANDU — CPN (Maoist Centre) ministers have tendered their resignation to Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba en masse on Friday.

On October 17, Prime Minister Deuba had stripped 16 ministers, including seven state ministers, from the Maoist Centre of their responsibilities. But they continue their tenure without portfolio.
