Political crisis in Nepal: Supreme Court canceled the appointment of 20 cabinet ministers, only five ministers including PM left in the government

Political crisis has deepened once again in Nepal. In a major setback to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, the Supreme Court on Tuesday canceled the appointment of 20 cabinet ministers. These ministers were appointed by KP Sharma Oli. But the Supreme Court has declared it unconstitutional.

A bench of Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana and Justice Prakash Kumar Dhungana, while pronouncing the verdict on Tuesday, said that the cabinet expansion after the dissolution of the House was unconstitutional. Therefore ministers cannot be removed from their duties. According to a news in Kathmandu Post, two deputy prime ministers Rajendra Mahato from Janata Samajwadi Party and Raghubir Mahaseth from Oli's CPN-UML party have lost their posts. Mahaseth was also the Finance Minister in the Oli government.

Five ministers left in Oli's cabinet

After this order of Nepal's top court, now only five ministers are left in Prime Minister Oli's cabinet including him. Only Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Bishnu Paudel, Education Minister Krishna Gopal Shrestha, Physical Infrastructure Minister Basant Nembang and Law Minister Leelanath Shrestha are left in the government. On 7 June, six people had filed a petition against Oli's cabinet expansion. Senior advocate Dinesh Tripathi was also involved in this. He had demanded that the cabinet expansion decision should be canceled immediately.

Government in minority after trust vote

KP Sharma Oli, 69, had to face defeat in the no-confidence vote last month. After this his government was reduced to a minority. After this, on June 4 and 10, he expanded the cabinet and included 17 ministers. However, this decision was also criticized a lot. Three ministers of state were also appointed. The Supreme Court quashed the appointment citing Article 77(3). According to this, if the Prime Minister's Office falls vacant after the Prime Minister does not get the vote of confidence or the PM resigns, then the same cabinet will continue to function until another cabinet council is formed.


Shopping in supermarket became the cause of death! Exit gate closed after massive fire, 396 people were burnt to death

Shopping in supermarket became the cause of death! Exit gate closed after massive fire, 396 people were burnt to death

Supermarkets exist for shopping in countries around the world, where people reach to buy their everyday things. These supermarkets are equipped with all kinds of facilities to make them safe for the people. But what if someone goes to the supermarket for shopping, but does not come back alive. Actually, one such incident came to light in Paraguay on this day, when a huge fire broke out in a supermarket located in Asunción, the capital of the country. 396 people died in this incident.

On August 1, 2004, a massive fire broke out at the Ycuá Bolaños supermarket in Asuncion. The thing to note here is that in case of fire, the exit gate is usually opened, so that people can get out safely. But after the fire in this supermarket, the exit gate itself was closed. The reason behind this was to prevent people from stealing goods. On the other hand, while supermarkets around the world are safe, this building lacked adequate fire protection systems. The president of the supermarket company as well as various employees were later sentenced to prison for their actions during the fire.

How did the fire in the supermarket?

On August 1, 2004, there were two explosions on the first floor, after which a fire broke out. This fire kept burning for seven hours, after hard work, the fire department brought the fire under control. After the incident, it was found that 396 people have died due to burns. In addition, more than 500 people have been injured. The cause of the fire was told that there was a bad barbecue chimney, which leaked hot flammable gases into the roof. Because of this the fire started.

More attention was given to supermarket goods than life

Fire survivors and volunteer firefighters alleged that during the time the fire broke out, the doors inside the complex were locked at the instructions of supermarket owners Juan Pio Paiva and his son Victor Daniel. Because of this people got trapped inside the blazing complex. This was done so that people could not run away with the goods without paying. However, the management of the supermarket vehemently denied these allegations. At the same time, Paiva, his son and the security guard surrendered before the police and charges were framed against them.
