KATHMANDU — Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N) has suggested the name of lawmaker Resham Lama in place of Birat Bista for the post of Assistant Minister for Federal Affairs and Local Development on Wednesday.
Lawmaker Lama is the central member from the party and Chairman of Kavre district.
The party had written a letter to PM KP Oli to expel Bista from the Cabinet for allegedly working against the party’s policy on Monday.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is, however, yet to expel Bista from the post.
Monday’s meeting of the party had decided to get back to Minister Birat Bista from the government blaming him for working against the party’s policies.
Minister Bista had openly advocated for the monarchy at a program of Shahi Yuba Shakti.
Bista is son of Keshar Bahadur Bista, who has been suspended from the party for his alleged anti-party activities.
Three weeks earlier, the party’s Central Committee had removed co-chairman of the party Keshar Bahadur Bista from all party position for three years after he made a public statement that the party should leave the government as the government could not address agendas raised by the party.
