Bagmati Province Chief Minister Rajendra Pandey resigns

Bagmati Chief Minister Rajendra Pandey has resigned from his position on Friday following public criticisms against him for sticking to the position even after winning a seat in the federal House of Representatives.

After taking the oath of federal parliament on Thursday, Pandey had turned to be in two posts at the same time: the chief minister of Bagmati province and HoR member.

Pandey reached the office of the provincial chief at Hetaunda-10 and submitted his resignation to the Province Chief Sharma.

Spokesperson for the Bagmati provincial government, Krishna Khanal, said that Pandey will serve as the head of the caretaker government until a new government is formed.

Pandey, who is also the Vice-Chairman of the CPN-Unified Socialist was elected a federal lawmaker from Dhading 1 in the November 20 elections. However, he had not resigned from the provincial government.

He is also the deputy leader of the Unified Socialist party in the House of Representatives.
