Kathmandu, February 15 – Nepal’s Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has resigned following official announcement of results of recent parliamentary polls in which his Nepali Congress party fared very badly. Deuba, however, claimed the responsibility of successfully holding elections at local, provincial and federal levels as he delivered a 15-minute televised address to the nation on Thursday morning.
During the address, Deuba also highlighted other key achievements of his eight-month premiership including improvements in diplomatic relationships and economic progress. He also claimed that the government took significant decisions to serve interests of people. With the CPN-Maoist Centre’s support, Deuba was elected the Prime Minister in June 2017. – ONLINE AKHBAR
