Cabinet reshuffle not anytime soon: Prachanda

KATHMANDU, Oct 18: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has clarified that the cabinet reshuffle is not happening anytime soon.

Dahal’s remarks come amid reports that Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli is preparing to reshuffle the cabinet as his ministers are criticized for their poor performance.

“Reshuffle in the cabinet anytime soon is not likely,” said Dahal while talking to reporters in Dhangadhi.

“The reports about which ministries will see changes are baseless.”

“Furthermore, this falls under the Prime Minister’s jurisdiction. If he wants, he can reshuffle the cabinet,” he added.

Earlier, Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli had denied the reports saying no discussion in this regard has been held yet.
